February 9, 2015

In addition to our anthology, which is currently open for submissions, we have some killer categories that are open year round.

Editorial Letter – If you’re interested in knowing a little bit more about what we thought of your writing, utilize our Editorial Letter option. When we’ve reviewed your piece we will include up to two pages of feedback on what we liked and didn’t like about your story, suggestions for revision, where it might be a good fit, and other comments about your piece. It’s nice to get feedback from the editors reviewing your work… and now you can.

“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.” – Benjamin Franklin

Fast Response – There’s a saying in publishing: “If you need to know now, the answer is no.” Well friends, we’re offering an exception to the rule. If you want to hear back regarding your New Voices story within two weeks, consider ponying up a few bucks to hear back right away, and we’ll respond with an acceptance or rejection within two weeks of receiving your story.

“There are no speed limits on the road to success.” – David W. Johnson

Anthology – The fourth volume of our anthology is currently open for submissions with the aim of publishing the ten best emerging writers. Get your work in front of editors, agents, and publishers, and have it personally selected by our guest judge, author Kevin Brockmeier. We are open to fiction and narrative nonfiction up to 7000 words until March 31, 2015. All emerging writers are free to submit as long as they have not published a novel-length work at the time of submission. $500 and publication will be awarded to ten authors.

“I’ve actually been solicited for work several times since publishing in the Master’s Review.” — Joe Worthen Volume III

“I’ve had such a busy semester, and never reached out to say thank you for all the work you all did on The Masters Review. It’s a beautiful book. I was even contacted by a literary agent, which is so neat, but also quite nerve-racking. Time to work on some fiction!” — Drew Ciccolo Volume III



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.
