REUNION: The Dallas Review

Reunion: The Dallas Review

For over two decades, Reunion: The Dallas Review (formerly Sojourn) has been dedicated to finding and publishing exceptional examples of previously unpublished short fiction, drama, visual art, poetry, translation work, non-fiction, and interviews. Published annually each fall, our mission remains cultivating the arts community in Dallas, Texas, and promoting the work of talented writers and artists both locally and across the globe.

Reunion publishes both seasoned writers alongside newer writers. Our readers and editors have eclectic tastes. We encourage you to read our submission guidelines, look over our past issues, and online samples for an idea of what we generally publish.

Most recently, his novel, Away Running, has been selected as the Outstanding International Book of the Year by the United States Board on Books for Young People. It is a most timely examination of race and issues facing Muslim youth. He will be reading from an in-progress novel that tells the story of the Union army’s "African Brigade," a unit made up of former slaves, and their three-week long raid into northeast North Carolina, from where most of the men had fled bondage.

For our first #ReunionStaffSpotlight, we'd love to introduce you to Esther Howard, our incoming Creative Nonfiction editor! Plus, it was her birthday this weekend—happy belated birthday, Esther, and glad to have you on the team! — Esther Howard is a current PhD student at The University of Texas at Dallas. Professionally trained as a teacher, Esther currently works as a Rhetoric Instructor for the university. Prior to this, she worked in neighboring high schools, teaching American Literature to 11th grade students. Though early in her doctoral studies, Esther is passionate about discourse centered around topics such as: feminist theory, Victorian studies, philosophy, and 17th-19th century history. Esther is also active on campus; she is the historian for the Graduate Student Association Senate and the Non-Fiction Editor for Reunion: The Dallas Review. When not teaching or studying, Esther can be found reading, binge-watching Netflix, watching anime, spending time with her fiancée/family/friends, and sleeping. — Stay tuned to learn more about Reunion's 2017-2018 staff!
