For the first time ever, The Masters Review is looking for previously published work! Got a story or essay close to your heart that you want to revive interest in? This is the challenge for you. Or maybe the journal is no longer online, or no longer in print—The Masters Review is offering your work a new home. As always, there are no limitations on style or topic, but our primary interest is in literary prose.

Fees Notice: This project charges fees (or requires purchases) for all submissions. The fee is USD $10.
Important: Reprints only.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Duotrope listings do not imply endorsement or recommendation of the project being listed. Before submitting, you should use your own judgment to determine whether the project meets your standards.

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
