Meet the Staff

January 8, 2014

Well ahoy there and welcome to 2014! It’s the New Year and along with a kick ass submissions session currently in place (MFA students, submit now!) we’ve got some brilliant new minds to add to the team. Take a look at these adorable faces and tell me you just didn’t fall a little harder for The Masters Review.

Kim founded The Masters Review to fill a need left by Best New American Voices. With the aim of exposing and showcasing new and emerging writers, she has worked with authors Lauren Groff, AM Homes, and Lev Grossman to fulfill that goal. She has over five years of experience in the publishing industry and also writes fiction, book reviews, and critical essays. Her fiction has appeared through Tin House, Ooligan Press, Gigantic, and was the winner of Flavorwire’s Short Fiction Contest. Her nonfiction has appeared or is forthcoming in The Oregonian, Portland Monthly, and The Independent, among others.

Arielle is a researcher, writer, reviewer, and editor based in Portland, OR. She is an alumnus of Western Washington University and the University of Denver Publishing Institute, and has worked with Jeopardy Magazine, Killer Infographics, Lambda Literary, Bitch Media, and Tin House. She has a soft spot for comics and lyric essays, and believes strongly in advocating for underrepresented writers. In her off time, she can often be found swing dancing or exploring the city on her bike.

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.
