Greetings from The Masters Review
We're reaching out because of our mission to support emerging writers. The Masters Review
focuses exclusively on new and emerging writers, publishing fiction and narrative nonfiction online, book reviews for debut authors, craft essays, interviews, and many other resources. Each year we pair with a New York Times bestselling author to produce our anthology, a ten-story collection of the best emerging writers, which is distributed nationally in addition to an exclusive mailing to editors, agents, and publishers. The anthology is one of our favorite projects each year and is an important part of our mission. Submissions to The Masters Review Volume IV with stories selected by Kevin Brockmeier are now open,
and we are asking our friends to help spread the word. We have included some ready-to-share information below for email, twitter, or facebook should you think this would be well received by your readership. We thank for your help in this endeavor.

SUBMISSIONS NOW OPEN for
The Masters Review Volume IV
Judged by Kevin Brockmeier
Deadline: March 31st
At The Masters Review
, our goal is to publish and promote the work of emerging writers. One of the ways we do this is through an annual anthology.
Our guest judge this year is author Kevin Brockmeier. Mr. Brockmeier and The Masters Review staff are looking for the best fiction and narrative nonfiction from emerging writers, which we consider to be authors who have not yet published a novel-length work. The top ten writers selected for publication will be nationally distributed with their work exposed to top agents, editors, and authors across the country. Published authors receive a total of $5000 in prizes.
“I’ve actually been solicited for work several times since publishing in the Master’s Review.” — Joe Worthen, Volume III
“I’ve had such a busy semester, and never reached out to say thank you for all the work you all did on The Masters Review. It’s a beautiful book. I was even contacted by a literary agent, which is so neat, but also quite nerve-racking. Time to work on some fiction!” — Drew Ciccolo, Volume III
“You guys have been great about promoting your authors and your literary magazine, and I can’t thank you enough for that. I’ve had at least one other litmag solicit work from me based on contact they’ve had with The Masters Review.” — Rachael Warecki, Volume I
"The Masters Review Volume III delights with a stunningly eclectic array of voices, uniform only in their excellence. This anthology is a testament to the health of contemporary literature."
-- Laura van den Berg, author of Find Me and The Isle of Youth
Submissions for our annual printed anthology are open now
