2021 Best Microfiction

The Citron Review is proud to announce our nominations for the third 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. Tania Hershman is this year’s judge.

We nominate excellent micros every year and we were so happy to see Christopher Gaumer’s “He Died We Left Him Til Morning” was published in Best Microfiction 2019 and Samantha Steiner’s, “My Closet” was in Best Microfiction 2021.

Each of the following unique pieces was first published in The Citron Review during the past calendar year. We proudly present The Citron Review’s 2021 nominations for Best Microfiction 2022.
