LauravdB quote

Enormous thanks to author Laura van den Berg for her kind words regarding our anthology. What a wonderful endorsement! Laura’s collection of stories The Isle of Youth was recently awarded The Bard Fiction Prize. This distinction adds to an impressive list. The Isle of Youth also won the Rosenthal Family Foundation Award from the American Academy of Arts & Letters and was named a “Best Book of 2013” by over a dozen venues. Laura is also acting as one of the judges for the Story Prize this year. Her novel, Find Me, will be out this February. Obviously her words mean a great deal to us. Thank you, Laura!


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.
