What's Inside this Collection.
Ten Spurs is a literary journal produced by the Mayborn Graduate Institute of Journalism at UNT each year. The ten writers are the winners of the writing contest of the Mayborn Literary Nonfiction Conference from the previous year. There are six winners -- three from the reported narrative category and three from personal essay. The four runners-up come from both areas. The top winners are awarded cash prizes and trophies at the Mayborn Conference in July and are published in the journal and on the website.
