My microfiction "Leftovers" was so tiny and I almost gave up on placing it anywhere. I tacked it onto a submission to ATTICUS REVIEW because they allow three flash in a submission and I only had two. I was surprised when the fiction editor Michelle Ross wrote back and said she loved it and wanted to publish it.
I'm grateful, honored, and even more surprised that "Leftovers" has been nominated by ATTICUS REVIEW for BEST MICROFICTION 2018! Best Microfiction is a relatively new annual anthology of microfictions under 400 words, edited by Meg Pokrass and Gary Fincke (this year the final judge will be Dan Chaon). I write a lot of micros (my favorite is "Little Darling" in WIGLEAF), but this is the first time I’ve been nominated, so I’m particularly pleased. And there are flash friends whose work I follow and love on the list: Claire Polders, Tara Isabel Zambrano, Benjamin Woodard, Leonora Desar. All of the micros on the list are amazing. See the link to the announcement above for links to the stories.
