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.

The Masters Review is proud to announce our first chapbook contest! We’re seeking to celebrate bold, original voices within a single, cohesive manuscript of 25 to 40 pages. We’re interested in collections of short fiction, essays, flash fiction, novellas/novelettes, longform fiction or essays, and any combination thereof, provided the manuscripts are complete (no excerpts, chapters, works-in-progress, or other incomplete work), and function cohesively. The Masters Review staff will select a shortlist of 5-10 chapbooks to pass along to Steve Almond, who will select the winning manuscript. 

Entries should be in English.

Manuscripts should be between 25-40 pages.

Entry fee 
The entry fee is $25.

Winner receives $3000, manuscript publication, a subscription to Journal of the Month, and 50 contributor copies.
