Dear Kyle Miller,
Thank you again for submitting to The Masters Review Volume V judged by Amy Hempel. We are overwhelmed by the number and quality of submissions received. In order to give each piece the attention it deserves, we have decided to extend our reading period, but only by a few weeks. The shortlist of forty stories will be announced on or before May 6, and the list of ten finalists will be announced on or before June 6.
We appreciate the trust you place in The Masters Review by sending us your work, and your patience while we review it. We will keep you updated throughout the process. We are having a lot of fun reading your writing. Thank you, again, for your support! It means a lot to us.
