Since 2003, SmokeLong Quarterly has been dedicated to bringing the best flash fiction to the web on a quarterly basis, whether written by widely 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.

Interrobang?! Improv is an improvisational comedy group that has performed in Seattle since 2010. Comprised of members of Jet City Improv, ComedySportz, TheatreSports, and independent improvisers, they’re known for their physicality and embrace of experimentation.
