Reed 152 is an open-themed issue. We are looking for creative nonfiction, e.g. personal essays or narratives, not scholarly papers or book reviews. All works should be stand-alone essays, not chapters of a longer work. 

Editors read all nonfiction submissions of up to 5,000 words. 

Please be sure to:

  • include your name, address, phone number, and email address on the first page
  • format pieces in double-spaced 12-point font
  • include word count
  • number pages
  • provide a brief bio
  • make sure your Submittable profile is up-to-date 

Prize submissions require a reading fee of $20, which includes a free copy of the latest edition of Reed. (We are sorry that we cannot send complimentary journals to contestants outside the USA because of the cost of postage.)

Contest submissions not selected may still be considered for publication in the magazine.
