 A big THANKS to all of our amazing submitters this year. We are overwhelmed by your enthusiasm and response. We will not let you down! Please expect to hear from us within 10-12 weeks.

Our love of flash fiction runs deep. We are proud to now offer a contest dedicated solely to flash twice a year. This is the first time we have offered a summer contest for tiny and mighty fiction. The winning writer will be awarded $3000 and publication on The Masters Review site. Second and third place will be awarded $300 and $200, respectively, as well as publication in The Masters Review. So here it is: a home for your very best small fiction.
