>Read about this site slushpilereader.com in P&W (The Democratic Approach to Slush). On the one hand, I think, eh, why not? I like democracy. On the other hand, it’s not something I would ever choose to do with one of my manuscripts–for many reasons, not the least of which is that I know (from personal experience) about how nutty/competitive people can get in any peer-based voting situation.

Speaking of slush piles… if you’ve ever read for one, you know how wacky and off the mark some of the submissions can be. Check out what they have to say about this at the VQR blog: Bad Submissions: The X Factor


About smokelong

Our Mission: SmokeLong Quarterly is dedicated to bringing the best flash fiction to the web on a quarterly basis, whether writtenwidely published authors, or those new to the craft. The term "smoke-long" comes from the Chinese, who noted that reading a piece of flash takes about the same length of time as smoking a cigarette. All the work we publish is precisely that—about a smoke long.
