“Here is a single place to celebrate all the wondrous and wonderful bigness of the tiniest of stories. Best Microfiction is amazing. A great accomplishment.”—Grant Faulkner, executive director of National Novel Writing Month

We are pleased to say that the 5th anthology Best Microfiction 2023 will be published by Pelekinesis in the summer of 2023. The Best Microfiction anthology series considers stories of only 400 words or fewer. Co-edited by award-winning microfiction writer/editor Meg Pokrass, and Flannery O’Connor Prize-winning author Gary Fincke, the anthology will have Deb Olin Unferth serve as final judge.

Thank you for all the wonderful contributions! The current submission period is now closed and reading has begun. Keep your eye on this space for news and updates leading up the the publication of Best Microfiction 2023.
