 He wrote with an intent of influencing the younger generations. He was awarded the silver (1950) and gold (1976) Musgrave Medals  the Order of Jamaica (1980) and the Norman Manley Award for Excellence in Literature in 1981.
 
He was the author of several novels three of which were aimed towards children one play production and several short stories. Two of his most notable works are New Day - "the first West Indian novel to be written throughout in a dialect form" - and The Leopard.


As a writer Reid aimed to instil an awareness of legacy and tradition among the Jamaican people. His writings reflected many of the social and cultural hardships that pervade the time periods illustrated in his literary works. 


Reid was one of a handful of writers to emerge from the new literary and nationalist movement that seized Jamaican sentiment in the period of the late 1930s. From this "new art" surfaced many of Reid’s literary contemporaries including Roger Mais, George Campbell, M. G. Smith, and H. D. Carberry. 

A common objective among this new generation of writers was an inclination to "break away from Victorianism and to associate with the Jamaican independence movement."
