TMR’s 2022 In Review

December 19, 2022

2022 is nearly behind us. It was, again, another terrific year, in which we celebrated our 10th anniversary with TMR Vol. X with Stories and Essays selected by Diane Cook, featuring as always, ten fresh, emerging voices, this year alongside personal essays from former anthology contributors. We published our first chapbook, Masterplans by Nick Almeida, announced the winner of our second chapbook: Love at the End of the World by Lindy Biller. We published the winners of our inaugural Novel Excerpt Contest, featured new fiction from Chaya Bhuvaneswar and over forty new stories, flashes and essays! Here’s to a great 2023!

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.
