A few months ago, SmokeLong began offering feedback from our senior editors, and this has been going well. I’m thrilled that this service is providing income for our editors as well as quality feedback for writers. Our goal at SmokeLong is to pay as many contributors and editors as possible. In December I’m making it possible for our senior editors–Sherrie Flick, Shasta Grant, Jan Elman Stout, Helen Rye, and our quarterly guest editor Steve Edwards–to earn a bit more, while giving writers a gift as well. Starting December 1, the services below will be half price until December 31, but the senior editors will receive the full price from SmokeLong.
Senior Editor Critique and Feedback — If you choose this option, you will receive line-editing and detailed editing suggestions and comments on one flash narrative from an experienced editor.
SmokeLong General Submissions with Feedback — If you choose this option, you will receive comments on one flash narrative from at least 3 senior editors. These comments will be a general response to the narrative describing what works and what doesn’t with some suggestions for revision. This option is ideal for submitters who’ve received a personal rejection indicating that the narrative sparked a discussion among the editors.
General submissions at SmokeLong will always be free, so why not send us your brilliance?
I hope you are all coping well.
