Kathy Fish Fellowship for Flash Fiction Writers: Applications Open until 31 October

Literary journal SmokeLong Quarterly is inviting applications from new and emerging flash fiction writers for the 2018 Kathy Fish Fellowship.

Established in 2003, SmokeLong Quarterly aims to publish the best flash fiction to the web, whether written by widely published authors or those new to the craft. Flash fiction published by SmokeLong has been recognised by the Pushcart Prize, Best of the Web, Best Small Fictions and the Wigleaf Top 50.

The winner of the Kathy Fish Fellowship 2018 will act as a writer-in-residence, with their flash fiction appearing in every issue of the magazine next year. The successful writer will receive a total remuneration of US$500; $100 per story plus $100 when the fellowship is announced.

To be eligible to apply writers must be aged over 18, have not yet published a book-length or chapbook-length work and have not been previously published in SmokeLong Quarterly.  As this position is a virtual one, the fellowship is open to writers based anywhere in the world.

To apply for the fellowship writers must supply four examples of their flash fiction (up to 1000 words each). At least one of these examples must be previously unpublished.

Fellowship applications submitted before 20 September will attract no entry fee, though a $5 donation is suggested. After 20 September, a $5 entry fee will be payable with all applications.

Applications for the 2018 Kathy Fish Fellowship close on Tuesday 31 October. For further information visit the SmokeLong Quarterly website.

If you miss this deadline or simply want to have your work considered for publication, SmokeLong Quarterly accepts unsolicited submissions year round.
