This week, I have the pleasure of serving as the Guest Reader for SmokeLong Quarterly, an online journal that features flash fiction up to 1000 words. I received this opportunity after meeting and interviewing writers Art Taylor and his wife Tara Laskowski, an editor with SmokeLong. The name SmokeLong comes from a Chinese saying about a story being as long as a good smoke. I'll read all the submissions made this week, select one I recommend for publication, and interview the story's author. If you would be interested in submitting, please check out the information about the guidelines and submissions.
