The SmokeLong Flash Fellowship for Emerging Writers is Open for Applications!

August 5, 2019

The submission period for the SmokeLong Flash Fellowship for Emerging Writers is officially open. A few things are different this year. The first big change is that we’ve increased the award to $1000. The second: Writers previously published by SmokeLong Quarterly are now eligible for this year-long, virtual fellowship!

The winner of the fellowship publishes four stories with SmokeLong, one in each quarterly issue during their appointment. Fellows will work with SmokeLong staff, reading and commenting on stories in the SmokeLong queue, and participate in online writing workshops. We are searching for a writer who is passionate about workshopping their stories and working intensively with our staff for one year.

Writers 18 years or older who do not have a published chapbook or book-length work in any genre (or are not under contract for such) are eligible to apply.

SmokeLong Fitness--The Community Workshop

Next Date to Join: January 1!

On September 1, SmokeLong launched a workshop environment/community christened SmokeLong Fitness. This asynchronous 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 10-12 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 in a community.
