Coat and Shoes in Smokelong

I have been trying for a long time to get a story accepted by Smokelong Quarterly, a flash fiction magazine I admire greatly. Finally, it has come to pass! Read my story, Coat and Shoes, beautifully illustrated by Robinson Accola, and the accompanying interview. I am alongside some fabulous writers: Stefanie Freele, Barry Graham, Kuzhali Manickavel, and names that aren't familiar to me but whose work I look forward to reading. Every issue of SQ is a treat.

Congrats T. and the added sparkle of being asked to submit! Its nice when that happens... I just had a request from a UK mag. Thing is, what do I send? Hmmm.

But I always quote Smokelong when Im doing any flash work in teaching... and also refer to it in the text book coming out soon. I think it is a source of really good flash work.

V - it is such a great source of flash, isn't it?

Haim, I think you mean minimalism! Thank you for reading my flash story, lovely to find a new reader, I hope you are being wooed by the charms of short short stories!

Nik,thank you!
