#FlashGiving Winners and Stories

November 25, 2016

It’s been an amazing week of flash fiction giving and receiving. Thank you to everyone who participated in SmokeLong’s #FlashGiving!

We discovered many wonderful pieces of flash fiction, while celebrating and saying thank you to the talented writers who created them. Please check out the hashtag #FlashGiving to read all the stories.

Five lucky individuals were chosen at random to receive a copy of Randall Brown’s Pocket Guide to Flash Fiction. Below are the winners and a story they tweeted to us:


Christina Dalcher tweeted us Ani King’s “Conjugate ‘to be’, using complete sentences,” published at freeze frame fiction.


Cathy Ulrich tweeted us Rebecca Harrison’s “The Slinky” published at Menacing Hedge.


Jan Stinchcomb tweeted us Ashley Hutson’s “The Hen of God” published at The Conium Review.


Voimaoy tweeted us F.E. Clark’s “The Solstice Shade” published at The Molotov Cocktail.


Sophie van Llewyn tweeted us Paul Beckman’s “I Have a Problem” published at Spelk.

Thank you again to everyone who participated. Happy #FlashGiving!

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.
