I'm so thrilled that the awesome editorial team at CHEAP POP chose to nominate my flash piece "Sanctus Spiritus, 1512" for Best Microfiction 2018! My piece is in phenomenal company: check out the other nominated pieces on the journal's site. I'm honored to have a piece nominated alongside these greats.
CHEAP POP has been a bucket-list/dream lit mag of mine since I started submitting my work for publication a couple of years ago. They publish thoughtful, interesting micro fiction, have a great vision for the kind of work they want to showcase (and have dreamy graphics), and really hype their authors online. When they welcome you to the CHEAP POP family, they really mean it (and you really feel it, too). I consider myself very lucky that "Sanctus Spiritus" found a home with them. This tiny story was nearly two years in the making (!!! cautious deliberator !!!), is the first of a series (surprise!), and holds a very special place in my imagination. The fit is just right, and I'm just so, so pleased that they feel the same way.
Fingers crossed, and best of luck to us all!
