    Summer Workshop with Tin House Editor Michelle Wildgen

    Each quarter we host an online workshop that allows you to get feedback from an established writer or editor in the field. Our summer term is perfect for polishing up those stories for fall, when lit mags open to submissions. We’re thrilled to announce that from Aug 1 – Aug 31, Tin House executive editor Michelle Wildgen will be offering feedback on stories.

    A family moves to a suburb and buys a home with a creek in the backyard. The kids are more interested in video games and playing indoors than exploring the water, but Julia, the mother, is drawn to the creek.

    We're thrilled to announce that the third volume of our anthology, The Masters Review Volume III with stories selected by Lev Grossman, was awarded a silver medal for best short story collection by Foreword Reviews and the American Library Association. Other winners include Chuck Palahniuk, Zack Whedon, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

    The Masters Review is up to a lot of cool stuff. Our SHORT STORY AWARD FOR NEW WRITERS recently closed and will soon recognize three outstanding stories. OUR ANTHOLOGY, with guest judge KEVIN BROCKMEIER, acknowledges today's best emerging writers and will publish this fall. The anthology is one of our favorite projects each year and acts as a major endorsement for new writers. In addition to publication in a nationally distributed journal, anthology authors are part of an exclusive mailing to editors, agents, and publishers. We also offer a ton of great opportunities for writers. Our New Voices submission category is free to submit and pays for stories. Our ONLINE WORKSHOP allows you to get detailed feedback on your story from an expert in the field and reopens shortly. It's all part of our mission to offer a quality platform for emerging writers.
