THMS Poetry & Creative Writing Club Presents


THMS Literary Magazine, 2014

Download Here (12MB)


The book was compiled, edited, and hand-bound by students from the Poetry Club and Creative Writing Club. The theme of the publication and the arrangement of work was a student-created concept -- the gradient, light to dark, and the work is arranged by tone in that way. The cover illustration was created by Maya Rizk.

This year our students have been invited as keynote presenters to the University of Arizona Poetry Center's Literary Press Fest, where they will share their selection and production process with area students and teachers. The event will be on Saturday, December 6 at the Poetry Center.
