Thank you to everyone who submitted to The Masters Review Short Story Award for New Writers. We nearly doubled the number of submissions from last year and are thrilled to be considering so many wonderful stories. Our readers are already at work and we hope to have the winners and honorable mentions announced in early September. Every submission is considered carefully. Thank you again for your support!

Stay tuned for updates and announcements!


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.
