The seventh volume of the masters review holds ten of the best essays and short stories from emerging writers, all handpicked by Rebecca Makai!
In the introduction to The Masters Review Volume VII, guest judge Rebecca Makkai, author of The Great Believers, asks: “What does it mean to be an emerging writer?” It’s a question that The Masters Review has concerned itself with since its inception, in its mission to uplift and provide a platform for the voices of those writers who have not yet been “discovered.” In this volume, Makkai has collected ten stories and essays, which each have what she calls “the airplane factor.” Can this writer successfully land the plane, nail the ending, deliver its readers safely from one point to the next? Yes, yes, yes, ten times over.
