The Masters Review Volume V – Now Available!

October 1, 2016

The Masters Review Volume V with stories selected by Amy Hempel is now available for purchase. Our guest judge writes in her introduction: “I wanted narratives that overturned expectations, that gave me a much-needed respite from real life with sentences I would quote to friends, and—in the best cases—stories that gave me ideas for better addressing the facts of real life…” We’re so pleased to share this very special collection with you. It represents ten writers who we believe will continue to do great work.

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.
