Oregon Book Award Winner Reviews The Masters Review

October 8, 2012

The Masters ReviewGeorge Estreich won the Oregon Book Award for narrative nonfiction in 2012, for his brilliant work, The Shape of the Eye. He had a chance to spend some time with our book and had this to say about the project and quality of writing. Thank you, George!

The Masters Review is a welcome addition to the long list of American literary journals. For writers in M.F.A. programs–both traditional and low-residency–The Masters Review provides a place to submit and a possible showcase; for readers of literary fiction and nonfiction, the journal is a way to discover new writers. The prose, by turns quiet, experimental, and starkly honest, ranges widely in subject matter and style, but is always of high quality.”

Congratulations to our authors for continuing to knock the socks off of readers!

We are so proud.


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.
