Awards, Finalists, and Winners


The Masters Review is offering a round of applause to three members of our team who have been honored in fiction over the last few weeks. It’s a trifecta of awesome and we’re here to pay this news some notice.

AM Homes is Awarded the Women’s Prize for Fiction

Our guest judge, AM Homes was awarded The Women’s Prize for Fiction last week for her novel May We Be Forgiven, beating out the likes of Hilary Mantel, Zadie Smith, and Maria Semple. This is an astonishing accomplishment and we’re so honored to have worked with her this year.

“Potomac” Named Finalist for the Nelson Algren Award

Masters Review Volume II author-to-be, Andrew Payton, was selected as a finalist for the Chicago Tribune’s Nelson Algren Award for his short story “Potomac” which we will be publishing in October. Congratulations, Andrew!

Kim Winternehimer Wins Flavorwire’s Short Fiction Contest

Masters Review fiction editor, Kim Winternheimer, won the Flavorwire Short Fiction contest last month for her short story, “The Art and Science of Growing Back Your Arm.” It’s five pages of sheer, wondrous delight.

We’re in good company, no? Congratulations to all three!
