Reading is Sexy: Style Guide

November 14, 2012

1. Schoolboy Blazer in Houndstooth by J Crew.

Editors and agents will have to take you seriously if you’re looking this good. Didn’t you know Houndstooth is the international pattern for literary? Enjoy.

2. Combback Windsor Writing Desk. (Etsy)

This windsor writing desk will inspire great words. Get your hands on it now.

3. Brightside Colorblock Sweater by Madewell.

This sweater is the perfect answer to those dreary winter days. It’s sure to bring a little sunshine into your workspace… and writing.

4. Hunt Trapper Plaid Wool Hat by Woolrich.

If this doesn’t scream Holden Caulfield then I don’t know what does. If you’re holed up in a winter cabin this season trying to finish your short story or novel, this hat will help keep you warm (and looking good) while you’re at it.

5. Leather Messenger Bag. (Etsy)

Doesn’t every serious author (professor, poet, student) need a well-worn messenger bag to help store books, notepads, and computers? Thought so.


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.
