Submission Guidelines:

We accept works of fiction and creative nonfiction less than 7000 words. All genres and all styles are welcome. We’re sorry to say we can only review a single story at a time. Please do not submit multiple stories in one file. Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis. You can reserve your spot now, but when spaces are full we can no longer accommodate additional participants.

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.
