The Reed is an undergraduate journal in that it is made, written, and edited by undergraduates. Our carefully-selected team of editors begins reviewing submissions in early March, and you can expect to hear back from us by the end of March. Every essay will be read by at least three editors who will each fill out a review, which you may request to see after our final selections have been made. Readings will be done blindly. After the initial readings, the editing team will make final selections from the essays with the most positive reviews. Our editing team looks forward to reading your submissions!
