May Is Short Story Month

May 4, 2018

It’s the marvelous month of May. Along with the return of the sun and beautiful blooming things, May is Short Story Month. Every year, we dedicate our May content to a celebration of the short story form. This year, you can look forward to: our Winter Short Story Award winners, an interview with Rita Bullwinkel, whose debut short story collection is out this month, a contribution from Ruth Joffre whose first collection also launches this May, and an essay on the ever-advancing relationship between literature and technology. If you’re still hungry for awesome content that celebrates the short story, there is no shortage of fiction, essays, and interviews in our archives. Check out this interview with Aimee Bender and this essay on character folding by Rebecca Makkai (our Volume VII judge!) to get you started.


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.
