May the Fourth be With You — Reduced-fee entry day!

May 4, 2020

Today is the day. If you’ve been holding on to that killer flash fiction, waiting for the entry fee to come down, there’s no time like now! Actually now is the only time. For the rest of today, you may enter to win the SmokeLong Quarterly Award for Flash Fiction for $4 a story. Please make sure you use the May the Fourth Be With You form on Submittable.

We are offering this reduced rate to writers who have been adversely affected by the current crisis, people whose lives were already pretty damn hard before the world went into lockdown, people who need a break right now.

I know nothing about Star Wars, so I’ll leave it up to you guys to make allusions to the movies in your retweets.

Stay well,

A SmokeLong Summer 2023!

Book Now!

From June 5 to August 27 2023, SmokeLong is going to host the superworkshop, A SmokeLong Summer for the second year. We want to spend the summer with you, the flash community. Our asynchronous workshops take place on a devoted website where you can create a profile, interact with the flash community, and take part in group discussions on craft, but A SmokeLong Summer is much more.
