Here is a small sampling from our recent Editor Interviews. We have interviewed over 1,950 editors.

Q: Do you nominate work you've published for any national or international awards?

A: We have not yet but we do intend to

A: Not yet!

A: Yes. I nominate our books to the Bram Stoker Awards with the Horror Writers Association.

A: Not yet. But we are looking forward to including it in the near future.

A: No.

A: Yes, often! We do tend to focus on smaller (local, niche, indie) awards because as a small publisher and often with early-career authors, there's a better chance of standing out from the crowd than if you're competing with NYT-bestsellers.

A: Not at the moment. I wouldn’t want to single out one or two poets of the many who we publish.

A: As a member of the Short Mystery Fiction Society, I plan to make Derringer Award nominations when the window next opens.

A: We nominate work to Pushcart and Best of the Net. We are always interested in promoting our writers in whatever way we can.

A: Certainly - if they are of suitable quality!

A: When appropriate and possible

A: Reed Magazine participates in nominations for Pushcart and the Best American Series regularly.
