Hey, you. Yeah, you there in the comfy seat with your shirt (maybe) and pants (probably) and hair (ish). are you growing tired of fast-paced television and movies delivering laughs and excitement and adventure with musical scores to rock your world? Probably not, but that shit’s expensive, and you work hard for your money, so pick up a copy of REED for a few bucks, pour yourself a bottle of two-buck chuck and have an evening to yourself — you deserve it.
Come join us for some good food, great literature and phenomenal vibes on May 13th at our launch party for Reed Magazine #67!
The party starts at 5pm and there will be readings by some of our contributors, including the 2014 John Steinbeck FIction Award winner, Shelly Weathers.

Our Steinbeck Award winner for best short story, Shelly Weathers, is planning to make her first trip to California to celebrate with us at the Reed launch party in May. She’s as excited as we are, as evidenced by her blog post: http://metonymicalpen.com/2014/03/22/meto-news/
The team is here at the Reed Magazine table, wearing our new t-shirts featuring the cover art chosen for forthcoming Issue 67. The guy towering over everyone is Chris Fink, former faculty advisor for Reed; he started the Steinbeck Award for fiction. Chris now teaches at Beloit but dropped by to say hello.
