Editorial Feedback Options

SmokeLong Quarterly now provides editorial feedback to our submitters if they choose to receive it.

If you are a writer and you would like feedback from the SmokeLong Quarterly senior editors, you have the following options:

Senior Editor Feedback — If you choose this option, you will receive line-editing and detailed editing suggestions and comments on one flash narrative* from an experienced flash-narrative editor. Click on the link to purchase this in the shop.

SmokeLong General Submissions with Feedback — If you choose this option, you will receive comments on one flash narrative* from 3 senior editors. These comments will be a general response to the narrative describing what works and what doesn’t with some suggestions for revision. This option is ideal for submitters who’ve received a personal rejection indicating that the narrative sparked a discussion among the editors.

The SmokeLong MentorshipThe SmokeLong Quarterly mentorship is for writers of the flash narrative as well as flash-adjacent writers looking to take the next step in their writing by establishing goals, deepening their understanding of the revision process, and learning how to be their own best editor. You can start whenever is right for you.

General submissions at SmokeLong will always be free. All the proceeds from the above feedback options go to the editors providing the feedback.

We always look forward to reading your words.
