Best Small Fictions 2017

October 10, 2017

We love a piece of flash or micro fiction and The Best Small Fictions has been a favorite of ours for some time. It’s a) an awesome collection of the best flash and microfiction published last year b) selected by our Volume V esteemed judge, Amy Hempel, and c) contains work from Cole Meyer, one of our longest and most trusted readers! And while we may be biased, you only have to read a few pieces from this collection to see that it is an awesome look at some small, but very special stories.

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 fiction and nonfiction online year-round and put out an annual anthology of the ten best emerging writers in the country, judged by an expert in the field. We publish craft essays, interviews and book reviews and hold workshops that connect emerging and established writers.
