Reed Magazine: A Journal of Poetry and Prose

San Jose State University's Literary Magazine featuring submissions of original poetry and short stories from across the nation. Reed Magazine is one of the oldest student publications west of the Mississippi. In its earlier incarnations it was called El Portal. Reed was first numbered by year and volume in 1946. At the time, the magazine was put together by SJSU's literary society, Pegasus, with help from the Associated Student Body. The magazine continues to be compiled and edited by students in the Department of English & Comparative Literature programs.
