SmokeLong Quarterly was established in 2003 by our founder Dave Clapper. We are dedicated to bringing the best flash fiction to the web, whether written by widely published authors or those new to the craft. The term “smoke-long” comes from the Chinese, who noted that reading a piece of flash takes about the same length of time as smoking a cigarette. All the work we publish is precisely that—about a smoke long.
Fees Notice: This project charges fees (or requires purchases) for some submissions. They charge fees for "tip jar" submissions.
