Fridge Flash: A Duk Swam

March 29, 2017

Today’s Fridge Flash comes from six-year-old, Esben Møller Semmel. This cautionary tale is full of phonetic fun and is poetic in structure. Be careful of duks!

 

by Esben Møller Semmel

a duk swam in the water

the duk landed in the water

the duk splashed water on me

the duk saw me

the duk floo too me

the duk was mad at me.

 

 

Esben Møller Semmel is a six-year-old kindergartner. He likes to draw and write stories and play baseball.

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.
