2020 Summer Short Story Award for New Writers

Who may enter
The competition is open to emerging writers. Self-published writers and writers with story collections and novels with a low circulation are welcome to submit.

The competition is organised by The Masters Review, an American literary magazine and book publisher.

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Only previously unpublished work will be accepted.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 Kali Fajardo-Anstine

Entry fee 
The entry fee is $20.

• 1st place: $3,000 and publication online
• 2nd place: $300
• 3rd place: $200
