New Name, Same Spirit: Sojourn is now Reunion

For UT Dallas’ literary journal, the title is new but the mission is the same.

Now known as Reunion: The Dallas Review, the magazine will keep doing what it’s done for more than two decades: publishing exceptional examples of short fiction, drama, visual art, poetry, translation work, non-fiction and interviews.

Previously known as Sojourn, the magazine remains dedicated to cultivating the local arts community and promoting the work of talented writers and artists, both locally and across the globe.

Editor Mickey Calderone explains the change in appearance: “We decided to rebrand the journal as Reunion: The Dallas Review because we wanted to affiliate ourselves more closely with the city of Dallas and its rich history.

“Reunion Tower is, of course, an iconic feature of the Dallas skyline. We are taking the journal in a new direction and hoping to branch out and connect with the city’s growing art community.”

Calderone thinks Dallas may be experiencing an artistic reawakening.

“We have seen UT Dallas’s CentralTrak program thrive and flourish over the past few years,” she said. “Our hope is that with the re-launch and promotion of Reunion, the literary journal and UT Dallas’s creative writing program will enjoy the same success.”

Anyone may submit to Reunion, whether you are just starting out and have no publishing credits to your name or are a seasoned artist who has been published multiple times. Submissions will be accepted through Dec. 1.
