Reed 153 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.
Contest submissions not selected for final judging may still be considered for publication in the magazine.
