    New Fiction: "The Uncanny Valley" by Matthew Pitt

    In this story, a pastor attends a Lamaze class with his wife. He can’t stop wondering about the man who comes to class with one woman one week, and a different one the next. Pitt’s incisive prose blurs the line between the strange and the familiar, making us question our own reality.

    The Masters Review is up to a lot of cool stuff. Our ONLINE WORKSHOP with Tin House Editor Michelle Wildgen is closed for registration, but waitlist spots are available. Also, our SHORT STORY AWARD FOR NEW WRITERS recently closed and will recognize three outstanding stories later this summer. OUR ANTHOLOGY, with guest judge KEVIN BROCKMEIER, acknowledges today's best emerging writers and publishes 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. It's all part of our mission to offer a quality platform for emerging writers.
