The SmokeLong three-hour live Zoom workshop is designed to give participants a solid foundation in the art of drafting compelling flash narratives. During the workshop, we will generate numerous story beginnings, draft stories, and focus on what we need to tell the world. We will also learn and practice new drafting techniques.

What sentence-level narrative devices make flash narratives compelling?

What sets flash narratives apart from other narrative forms?

What is a moment of being?

We’ll discuss these topics and more, and we’ll come away with lots of story drafts we can’t wait to share with the world.

Date: August 15
Time: 10:00-13:00 UK, 19:00-22:00 Sydney (please check for your particular time zone)

SmokeLong Fitness--The Community Workshop

Register Now! Begin October 1!

SmokeLong Fitness is the Ongoing Community Workshop of SmokeLong Quarterly. This asynchronous workshop happens on our dedicated workshop site. You will work in small groups of around 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.
