Editorial Focus

SmokeLong Quarterly, established in 2003, is dedicated to bringing the best flash narratives to the web, whether written by widely published authors or those new to the craft.

Tips From the Editor

The SLQ aesthetic remains an ever-changing, ever-elusive set of principles, but it most likely has to do with these kinds of things: language that surprises, narratives that strive toward something other than a final punch line or twist, pieces that add up to something, oftentimes (but not necessarily always) meaning or emotional resonance, honest work that feels necessary.

Submit only one story (1000 words or less) at a time. We don't publish poetry.
