SmokeLong Quarterly Comedy Prize

Event Details

This fall SmokeLong Quarterly are hosting our first annual prize for comedy in flash! We want to feel your razor-sharp wit, share your sideways view of the world, hear your irresistibly bizarre voice. We want to laugh out loud and snort our coffee through our noses. Yes, we want this. All at the same time. Make us smile. While there is no specific theme for this competition, your work should interpret the idea of comedy in some (in)appropriate way. Comedy can be dark or slapstick, burlesque or deadpan, a parody or even a mockumentary. It’s up to you. Give us your satire, your surrealism, or your absurdism. Or all four. The prize fund is a least $1600. Each of the (at least) four narratives selected to win The SmokeLong Comedy Prize will receive $400 and publication in the December 2021 issue. A shortlist will be announced prior to publication of the December issue. For writers who are financially unable to pay an entry fee, please watch SmokeLong Quarterly's social media channels for a free-entry day.
