2018: A Year in Review

December 19, 2018

2018 is coming to a close. What better time to reflect on the remarkable work we’ve published on The Masters Review this past year? From playwrights to mock patrols, from slaves to “Spies,” from “Birth Stories” to stories about death. This year, we covered it all. We are so excited for the careers ahead of these emerging authors.

At The Masters Review, our mission is to support emerging writers. We only accept submissions from writers who can benefit from a larger platform: typically, writers without published novels or story collections or with low circulation.

We publish craft essays, interviews and book reviews and hold workshops that connect emerging and established writers.
