F – The Masters Review Chapbook Open for Emerging Writers
December 31, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm$25
This year, The Masters Review is holding an open call for chapbooks. They want to publish your collections of flash, your mini novellas, your 40-page short stories, your braided essays, your eclectic brainchildren, your experiments. However you want to tell your story, they want to read it.
