SMOKELONG QUARTERLY’s 2008 Kathy Fish Fellowship
Fellowship Information:

The Fish Fellowship is sponsored by SmokeLong Quarterly
(, an online publication devoted to flash fiction that
has published for four and a half years. In the spirit of previous Fiction
Editor Kathy Fish, SmokeLong established the fellowship to foster new and
emerging writers. The award is open to any writer previously unpublished by
SmokeLong. The winner of the Fellowship will receive $500 over the course of
2008, will be published in each of 2008′s four issues, and will receive
feedback throughout the year on their writing from the staff of SmokeLong.
There is no entry fee.

1. Applications should be emailed to
2. Applications should include five samples of your flash fiction (stories
of a thousand words or less). These samples may be unpublished or previously
published in venues other than SmokeLong. We’ll be reading these to get
impressions of each applicant’s writing. The writing samples should, as a
whole, best reflect your ability, style(s), etc. Show us who you are as a
writer through these samples.
3. Applications should include a few paragraphs (under a thousand words
total) about what you hope to accomplish in the next year with your flash
writing. Are there specific elements you want to improve? A larger story you
want to tell through a series of flashes? Help us learn how we can help you
realize your goals should you win this award.
4. Samples and paragraphs about goals, etc. should be included in the body
of the email, rather than as attachments.
5. There is no application fee.
6. Application deadline is December 15, 2007.
