Fall Fiction Contest – Ann and Jeff VanderMeer – $2000 + Publication + Feedback.










Best. Judges. Ever.

The winning story will receive $2000 and publication on the site. Second and third place stories will receive $200 and $100, publication, and all story winners will receive a letter from Jeff and Ann about their piece, and why it was chosen. 15 Finalists will be recognized online and have their stories read by the VanderMeers. Interested? Awesome. You can SUBMIT HERE. Deadline: Oct 31.

New Voices – Editorial Letters and Fast Responses

We’re very proud of the fact that there is always a free way to submit and that we pay for every story published, but we also offer an Editorial Letter and Fast Response option for those of you who want feedback on a piece or would like to hear back within two weeks. These submission categories are back open and can be found here: mastersreview2.wpengine.com/submissions

Short Story Award Announcement – Coming Soon!

Thank you to everyone who submitted. We are planning to announce the winners later this month. Stay tuned!


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.
