Literary Magazine Limelight- Fantastic Flash Fiction Edition

Song of the Day: "Jumpin' Jack Flash" by The Rolling Stones

Hello all! Today I'm in San Antonio, TX! And what a lucky thing I'm still able to blog today! It will be very brief I'm afraid. I'm sticking to the facts and that's it! As you know, it's Fantastic Flash Fiction Week! The limelight is on the following flash fiction magazine:

SmokeLong Quarterly

   A literary Magazine for flash fiction. Issues are released in March, June, September, and December. Since flash fiction is their specialty, they only accept fiction of 1,000 words or less. According to their website this is what they are looking for:

* 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 as if it has far more purpose than a writer wanting to write a story

They also publish one story weekly (SmokeLong Weekly) on their website. These stories are also featured in the quarterly issues. They accept simultaneous submissions, but they do ask that you only submit two manuscripts per quarter. Allow up to four weeks for response time, but you can expect to hear from them sooner. I didn't see anything about a reading fee, so I'm assuming there isn't one. Be sure to check the website to make sure.
There you have it! As always, Good Luck and Happy Writing!


  1. What is "language that surprises?" I wonder?
