In 2018, SmokeLong took the step to pay writers for their work. In the meantime, we have also begun paying editors–not much but we plan to increase this amount over time. In addition, we pay the cover artist each quarter. SmokeLong is committed to furthering the form of the flash narrative in our community and beyond by working with creative writing classes around the world.

If you would like to send a little money our way, we promise to use it prudently.
