Formerly Homespun, Tennessee Tech. University's literary magazine goes all the way back online to the 2001-2005 issue of Homespun and was started in 1950. Although, Homespun goes back farther than in physical form. With a restart, The Iris Review got its name in early 2018 and is built off of the foundation that was established in Homespun.
Who We Are
We are a group of students at Tennessee Tech University who want to construct a creative archive for Tennessee Tech and the Cookeville area.
With Homespun, the submission pool was limited to Tennessee Tech., but the editors of The Iris Review have decided to open it up to the Cookeville area.
We also made the decision to include more art such as photography and graphic novel scenes.
