2019 Best Microfiction

The Citron Review is proud to announce our nominations for the second edition of Best Microfiction (Pelekinesis Press). This anthology series asks writers to tell our best stories in 400 words or less. It is co-edited by award-winning microfiction writer/editor Meg Pokrass, and Flannery O’Connor Prize-winning author Gary Fincke. Michael Martone is this year’s judge.

Each of these unique pieces was first published in The Citron Review during the past calendar year. From last year’s nominees, we were so happy to see Christopher Gaumer’s “He Died We Left Him Til Morning” was published in Best Microfiction 2019.

We proudly present The Citron Review’s 2019 nominations for Best Microfiction, 2020.
