Hi. I'm new here, so forgive me if this is a dumb question. I looked at the Odyssey themes and noticed that they were very detailed. Does this mean those stories have already been written? Thanks!  :inafog:

No, it just means that those are some of the ideas that the editor already has for articles, sort of to jump-start other ideas and help writers get a feel for what kinds of topics/focus she's looking for. Nothing is ever already written at the stage when the themes are created, but if they don't provide some specific examples, the queries that come in might be too vague or off the mark.
