Literary Charities

July 9, 2018
This year, we asked our wonderful readers to choose four literary charities for us to make donations to, in partnership with the team over at Frontier Poetry. We’re pleased to include the charities they picked below. We have made $250 contributions to each of these organizations. These donations were made in honor of all of our outstanding readers, submitters, and literary friends. Good will is especially important these days, and we are glad to be able to spread it. We couldn’t have done so without your help.

Literacy for Incarcerated Teens 

LIT strives to end illiteracy among New York’s incarcerated teens by providing them the resources that will allow them to read; this includes books, readings, and other literacy programming. From the site: “Reading and the practice of literacy—which include access to a library and library services—is a direct way in which young people can begin to focus their identities and outlooks more positively.”

Girls Write Now 

Girls Write Now helps empower women through the written word. As they say: “The relationships we foster tear down stereotypes, building a community of women writers of all ages who work to inspire and support one another with every pair session, every reading, and every workshop.”

Books to Prisoners 

Books to Prisoners mails books to people who are incarcerated. In their words: “We believe that books are tools for learning and for opening minds to new ideas and possibilities, and engage incarcerated individuals with the benefits of reading by mailing tens of thousands of free books to inmates across the country each year.”

Writers in the Schools 

“Storytelling reveals our truest selves. Since 1983, Writers in the Schools (WITS) has worked hand-in-hand with educators and professional writers to teach students the craft of writing. WITS is transforming the hearts and minds of young people all over Houston and beyond.”


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.
