At Inverted Syntax, we feel it is our responsibility to reward our contributors with recognition.
This year, we are nominating for Best MicroFiction and Best Small Fictions. “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 Michael Martone serve as final judge.”
"The Best Small Fictions is the first ever contemporary anthology solely dedicated to anthologizing the best internationally published short hybrid fiction in a given calendar year. Now in its sixth year of existence, Best Small Fictions features the best micro fiction, flash fiction, haibun stories and prose poetry from around the world."
Best MicroFicton Guidelines are: Editors of journals may submit up to four pieces published during 2019 http://www.bestmicrofiction.com/index.html We realize that each Best Microfiction anthology features work by many finalists and winners; however, we feel no matter the outcome, it is our responsibility to give our contributors the opportunity to have their work read by a wider audience, including the judges and editors of the anthology.

Best Small Fictions Guidelines: Editors of journals may submit up to five best works of flash and micro fiction, haibun stories and prose poems published in 2019. Submissions should be within 1000 words
We are therefore delighted to nominate our contributors works for the Best Microfiction and Best Small Fictions extending their audience, because we find them brilliant and necessary. The following piece was published in Inverted Syntax Print Issue 1 | January 2019
We wish our contributors the best of luck in the award process.
