SmokeLong Quarterly is accepting submissions July 15-September 15, 2016 for its 2017 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 2017 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 2017). 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 2017.
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All writers previously unpublished in SmokeLong Quarterly and who do not have a published chapbook or book length work (or are not under contract for such) are eligible to apply.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 July 15-September 15, 2016.
The winner will be announced in late December. For all guidelines and submission information, go here.
