Submissions Information: March 31st Anthology Deadline and New Voices

anthologyIVbannerhomepageSubmissions for our anthology The Masters Review Volume IV close at the end of the month, so get those stories in pronto. This is one of our favorite projects each year and we’re really looking forward to reading your work. Mark your calendars, set your clock, and polish those stories. The end of the month will be here before you know it.

“The Masters Review is a lovely magazine, in form and content. How awesome it is to see the next generation of writers kicking ass, taking names, and making beautiful art.” –STEVE ALMOND, author and essayist



New Voices Category

From March 5 – March 31, submissions to our New Voices category will be closed. Because reading for the anthology takes so much time, and because our shortlist and finalists announce so quickly, we will be busy reading for the book. The good news is you can submit your stories to the anthology because all stories are considered for publication. We are sorry for any inconvenience and look forward to reading your work this month and after the 31st.

New Submission Categories – More Options For Writers

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.

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.

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
