 Praise for The Masters Review’s Editorial Feedback

“I workshopped two stories with you/The Masters Review last year, and I wanted to let you know that revised versions of those stories helped me earn an acceptance to the University of Arizona, where I’ll be an MFA candidate in fiction this fall. Thank you so much for your feedback and for running such a wonderfully supportive publication and platform for emerging writers. ” Josh, Summer Workshop

“I wanted to share my news with you. “Piano Lessons,” the essay I submitted to the workshop with Anne Valente 2 yrs ago, is coming out in Creative Nonfiction in the April issue. You were so generous in your support of my writing. CNF was top on your list of recommended places to send it.” Ellen, Summer Workshop

“I hope The Masters Review will continue to do these online workshops and do them more frequently. It’s invaluable to get personal feedback from writers and editors of this caliber.” Drew, Summer Workshop

“Out of all of the editing processes I’ve encountered, the way you worked with me on ‘Shine’ stands out the most. I feel like you understand what I’m trying to achieve overall, offered edits to bolster that, and gave me suggestions that made the story that much stronger.” Ron, New Voices Author

“Thank you for this wonderful opportunity to receive thoughtful feedback on my writing!” Albert, Summer Workshop
