THEMA is a theme-generated journal of short stories, poetry, art and photography, each issue a stand-alone anthology based on a unique theme. The journal is designed to provide a stimulating forum for established and emerging literary artists, to serve as source material and inspiration for teachers of creative writing, and to provide readers with a unique collection of creative work.
