Reid co-founded the influential poetry journal TISH in Vancouver in 1961 with George Bowering, Frank Davey and Fred Wah. He published his first collection of poems, The Man Whose Path Was on Fire, in 1969. A short time later he joined the Communist Party of Canada and stopped writing poetry in favour of political work "because [he] didn’t have a way of working the language of politics into the language of poetry," explaining the 25-year gap between his first book of poetry and his later books.
