“One crucial thing that was missing in the world until recently? A single place to celebrate all of the wondrous and wonderful bigness of the tiniest of stories. Much gratitude for Best Microfiction.”
Grant Faulkner, executive director of National Novel Writing Month
“Short, sharp, funny, and sometimes dark. Penguins, too. The microfictions in Best Microfiction 2020 are compressed works of wondrous delight.”
Marcy Dermansky, author of Very Nice
“Reading these tiny, bright micro-fictions, I can’t help thinking of the scattered, chaotic molecules of coal, buried deep in black earth, compressed into diamonds, an effortless-seeming mine craft, like there’s nothing to it at all. Impossible not to marvel at these micro-fictions, such tiny bright suns as these.”
Lex Williford, author of Superman on the Roof
