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.
