The Masters Review Anthology is about finding 10 emerging authors and publishing a collection of their short stories in an anthology. It’s not very clear if this is US only, so you may have to email to ask. As we have many US readers, it’s still relevant. The anthology is sent to agents, editors and authors, so it’s a good opportunity and a few winners have received offers from agents, after being included.
The Key Facts:
- Entry costs $20 (£13)
- Writers must not have published a novel-length work at the time of submission (unclear if that includes self-published)
- Stories of up to 7,000 words
- Selected stories included in an anthology, which is sent to literary agents, editors, writers
- And a cold, hard cash award of $500 (£324)
- Closing date 31 March 2015

- The Masters Review also takes New Voice submissions all year round for free
Submissions are open from January 1, 2015 to March 31, 2015. This year stories will be selected by author Kevin Brockmeier who says he is “looking for the kind of stories that result when a writer combines imaginative daring with dynamic, exact, emotionally suggestive prose.” This category is open to ALL EMERGING WRITERS. Anyone who has not yet published a novel-length work.
We are looking for the country’s best emerging writers. Send us your best!
