Reed Magazine, California’s oldest literary journal, accepts submissions June 1 through November 1.


Check out our latest issue by going to our online bookshop to get yourself a copy (other issues are also available for purchase).


For over 150 years, Reed Magazine has published the work of artists such as Ursula K. Le Guin, Robert Hass,

T.C. Boyle, William Finnegan, Stephen Dixon, and Don George—artists whose narrative voices persist beyond print, whose imagery lingers in our minds, and whose language challenges us to think, to do, to be part of the creative legacy of our time.


Reed Magazine is for the truth-speakers:

Poets who reach universality through the chocolate chips in a breakfast pancake;

Fiction writers who craft characters that could walk off the page and into our living rooms;

Nonfiction writers, whose essays make large what was small;

And visual artists, whose work illuminates all these stories and others–the political, the social,

the cultural history of humanity.


No matter your medium, the staff at Reed Magazine wants to hear your stories. SUBMIT your poetry, fiction, nonfiction, or visual art, and let your voice be heard.
