Kathy Fish Fellowship--SmokeLong Quarterly
SmokeLong Quarterly is currently accepting submissions through October 15, 2015 for its 2016 Kathy Fish Fellowship for new and emerging writers. The fellowship honors Kathy Fish, a former editor at SmokeLong, a fantastic writer and a continuing champion of new and emerging writers.
The winner of the 2016 Kathy Fish Fellowship will be considered a “writer in residence” at SmokeLong (note: position is virtual) for four quarterly issues (March, June, September, and December 2016). Each issue will include one flash by the Fellowship winner.
The winner of the Fellowship will also receive $500.00, to be paid as follows: $100.00 on announcement of the winner, and $100.00 upon publication of each of the four issues in 2016.
Fellows will have the opportunity to work with SmokeLong staff and participate in online writing workshops.
All writers previously unpublished in SmokeLong Quarterly and who do not have a published chapbook or book length work (or are not under contract for such) are eligible to apply.
There is no application fee, but a $5 donation is suggested. No priority will be given to applications that submit with a donation.
Applications are open from August 15-October 15, 2015.
The winner will be announced in late December.
