Robert Bone Memorial Creative Writing Award

Sponsored by Reunion: The Dallas Review, an interdisciplinary arts journal published by UTD students, the Robert Bone Memorial Creative Writing Endowment aims to encourage UTD students in the field of creative writing. The Bone Award is given annually to a graduate or undergraduate student based on a completed creative writing work.
