Phoenix is a student-run campus publication dedicated to the artistic expression of students, faculty, and alumni. Now celebrating over 60 years in publication, the magazine is known as a home for student artistry at the University of Tennessee Knoxville. The Phoenix staff has always sought to provide students with a platform to speak truth to power and share their own stories through art.
In the past, Phoenix has housed the works of Cormac McCarthy, Bennet LeMaster, and Dr. Marilyn Kallet.
