The Masters Review is thrilled to announce this year’s guest judge, Time magazine book critic and New York Times bestselling author, Lev Grossman. Submissions for our printed anthology open on January 1, 2014 and remain open until the end of March. We are looking for the best fiction and narrative nonfiction written by students in graduate-level creative writing programs. Our collection represents the best among emerging writers and showcases the programs and schools cultivating this talent. We cannot wait to see what this year in stories will bring us and warmly welcome Mr. Grossman to our growing list of established writers and judges.
