Include a print-ready, third-person bio with your cover letter. We prefer a simple cover letter.
Please include no identifying information on your story’s document. Guest Editors read blind and have no access to bios.
Please send ONE previously unpublished piece at a time and wait until you hear our decision before sending another.
Please allow us up to four weeks to inform you if we have accepted your work for publication. You will usually hear from us much sooner.
Simultaneous submissions are accepted. Please inform us immediately if your work has been accepted somewhere else for publication.
We pay $50/story, upon publication in the quarterly issue. Payment will be issued via PayPal, and the writer may be responsible for any associated fees if applicable.
If you choose to make a donation to SmokeLong using the tip jar feature, thank you so much! Your contribution will help the journal remain a paying market. While it will not influence our decision regarding your submission, it will influence our love for you. We also offer readers the possibility of donating to SmokeLong on the website (at the end of every story).
We can't wait to read your words.
