I’m most pleased to share a piece that recently traversed the workshop by long-time HAHH contributor and AHHR editor Jason Peck, a short fiction piece called, “The Age of Discovery,” in SmokeLong Quarterly.
According to SmokeLong’s guidelines:
“SmokeLong publishes flash fiction up to 1000 words.
The SLQ aesthetic remains an ever-changing, ever-elusive set of principles, but it most likely has to do with these kinds of things:
- language that surprises
- narratives that strive toward something other than a final punch line or twist
- pieces that add up to something, oftentimes (but not necessarily always) meaning or emotional resonance
- honest work that feels as if it has far more purpose than a writer wanting to write a story“
