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 Quarterly Flash Workshop Online — This quarterly workshop is a 7-week asynchronous course taught by three experienced creative writing instructors, each leading a two-week module on a specific topic related to crafting compelling flash narratives. In this workshop, workshop leaders interact in the large group. Workshop participants give and receive feedback on drafts in small groups of around five people. If you are interested in this workshop, please keep an eye on our shop. You can also request to be on our workshop mailing list to receive information about future workshops. Limited to 20 paticipants.

The SmokeLong Intensive — This four-week asynchronous workshop made up of three modules and an editing week is appropriate for writers who want/need to hit the ground running, drafting lots of stories quickly. In this workshop, the workshop leaders are active in the small groups, commenting on drafts and giving encouragement along the way. Find out more in our shop and/or request to be on our workshop mailing list for advance information. Limited to 21 participants.

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.

SmokeLong Fitness--The Community Workshop

Next Date to Join: January 1!

On September 1, SmokeLong launched a workshop environment/community christened SmokeLong Fitness. This asynchronous community workshop is happening right now on our dedicated workshop site. If you choose to join us, you will work in a small group of around 10-12 participants to give and receive feedback. Each Monday, you will receive a new writing task (one writing task each week) designed by the senior editor team of SmokeLong. The core workshop is asynchronous, so you can take part from anywhere at anytime. We are excited about creating a supportive, consistent and structured environment for flash writers to work on their craft in a community.
