Highlight: Fast Response Add-on

April 9, 2020

Did you know The Masters Review offers expedited responses for New Voices submissions? If you’d like to know the result of your submission within two weeks, consider our Fast Response add-on option!

The Fast Response add-on is only available for New Voices submissions. Our New Voices category is open year round to any new or emerging author who has not published a work of fiction or narrative nonfiction of novel length. Authors with short story collections are free to submit. We accept simultaneous and multiple submissions but ask that you inform us immediately if your story is accepted elsewhere. We pay New Voices authors $200 for short fiction and narrative non-fiction, and $100 for flash fiction up to 1,000 words, and we do not charge submission fees, but are highly selective. To read previously published stories, or to submit a piece of fiction or narrative nonfiction up to 7000 words, please see our New Voices page. We do not charge submission fees for our New Voices category, unless you opt to pay for one of our Add-ons: Fast Response, Editorial Letter, or purchase a copy of our Anthology.

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.
