The Masters Review Book Review Series

The Masters Review conducts a book review series that analyzes, discusses, and reviews debut novels and short story collections. We are particularly interested in books from small and independent presses, graphic novels, experimental forms, and any texts that have something new to say. We do review established writers, but the bulk of our reviews are of authors who have published no more than two novel-length books.

We prefer book reviews on forthcoming titles, though we will occasionally make exceptions for books published in the previous four months. Submit your completed book reviews through Submittable. Reviews should include quotes, comparisons to other texts, and are typically between 700 – 1200 words. We are unfortunately unable to offer compensation for book reviews at the moment.

If you would like your book reviewed by The Masters Review, please either e-mail a digital ARC to cole [at] with BOOK REVIEW included the subject line, OR, mail a physical copy to the address below. Although we’d love to review everyone’s book, our publishing calendar is limited.

Thank you and enjoy!


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.
