The Masters Review Winter Short Story Award For New Writers

31 January 2020

Who may enter
The competition is open to emerging writers. Self-published writers and writers with story collections and novels with a small circulation are welcome to submit. Writers with novels published with a circulation of fewer than 5000 copies can also submit.

The Masters Review, an American literary magazine and book publisher, is inviting entries to the 2019-2020 Winter Short Story Award.

We don’t have any preferences topically or in terms of style. We’re simply looking for the best. We don’t define, nor are we interested in, stories identified by their genre. We do, however, consider ourselves a publication that focuses on literary fiction. Dazzle us, take chances, and be bold.

You may submit a fiction up to 6,000 words.

Only previously unpublished work will be accepted.

The competition will be judged by Kimberly King Parsons.

The entry fee is $20.

• 1st place: $3,000 and publication online
