The Masters Review, a friend of the podcast, has generously supplied us with two copies of their brand new issue. Each year The Masters Review publishes a ten-story collection showcasing the best in graduate-level creative writing. The 2013 edition features an introduction and stories selected by author AM Homes, one of which is “How to Like Girls”, an essay by our August interviewee, Courtney Gillette. (You can hear Courtney read the intro to her essay in Episode 2 of The Postmasters Podcast.) The goal of The Masters Review is to expose progressive, diverse, and well-crafted writing to agents, editors, and readers. A noble effort, and we want to help!

How To Enter

Win a copy of The Masters Review 2013 by sharing a photo of your nightstand library–on Instagram, Facebook and/or Twitter–sometime between now and October 31, and make sure you hashtag it #NightstandLibrary #PostmastersPodcast. It doesn’t matter where you share it; we’ll find your photo as long as it’s been appropriately hashtagged! And on November 1, we will randomly select two winners from the gallery of shared photos.

(Think hashtagging is silly? You’re not alone.  Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake prove it. But it does make giving away free books a lot easier!)

Can’t wait to see what you’re all reading… Share your photos with us today!
