Best Microfiction 2023 Nominations

For the first time, The Disappointed Housewife is pleased to nominate a few works for the annual Best Microfiction competition. This one has a 400-word limit, so I’ve been remiss in combing through our archives to find eligible pieces. We have a nice debut stable of short fiction for the 2023 prize:


Now Look at Her ~ Melissa Benton Barker

Migration is a Survival Instinct ~ Epiphany Ferrell

Centaurs in the Laundromat ~ Lynn Mundell

Forbidden Fruit ~ Karen Schauber

Same Old, Same Old ~ Francine Witte


Congratulations to all, and I’m sure our readers are rooting for these exquisite works!
