A SmokeLong Summer

May 30-Aug 28!

From May 30 to August 28 2022, SmokeLong is going to host a superworkshop. We want to spend the summer with you, the flash community. Our 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 will be much more.

Stay Informed

Sign up, and we’ll keep you informed on all things Smokelong.

We are dedicated to bringing the best flash narratives to the web quarterly, whether written by widely published authors or those new to the craft.
