“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.”
Smokelong was one of the first lit mags I had ever stumbled upon. Of course I immediately bought a copy and fell in love. I had to see what this whole literary magazine thing was about. This mag introduced me to flash fiction which I had no clue about. I didn’t know that you could write creatively with constraints like that all the while doing well at it. The mag is great and keeps things short, sweet, and interesting. Who can beat that?
