News: SmokeLong Guest Editorship

The fine folks at SmokeLong Quarterly have asked me to serve as guest editor this week — handling all submissions between Monday, November 8 and Sunday, November 14. I’ll choose one story from all the fiction arriving throughout that period, and that selected story will be published online at SmokeLong Weekly in early January and then again as part of the magazine’s quarterly issue in March. While I’ll be reading all stories blind (without the authors’ names attached), I do want to encourage many of my fellow writers to submit. Please note that all submissions have to be 1000 words or less and must be previously unpublished, but there are no thematic requirements. And even if you’re not a writer yourself, do check out SmokeLong on a regular basis. They publish some truly stellar fiction, and I’m just happy to be given the chance to help usher some more of the good stuff their way. — Art Taylor
