SmokeLong Fitness — The Community Workshop

On September 1st (2022) SmokeLong launched a workshop environment/community christened SmokeLong Fitness. This 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 12-15 participants to give and receive feedback on flash narratives. Starting in September 2023 we offer options to work in groups focused on flash fiction and flash CNF. Each Monday, you will receive a new writing task (one writing task each week) designed by the senior editor team of SmokeLong. We also offer readings groups each month focused on flash collections. The core workshop is all in writing, 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.
