Well They Don’t Make Just ANYONE Wood Tick Inspector, You Know  by Pearl

What could I do? The card he presented clearly said “Licensed Bikini Inspector”. And for those of you keeping score at home, yes, my swimsuit passed with flying colors.

THE BEGINNING OF SOMETHING by Becca Sanders

October 6, 2011

It was as though my body contained all the forms, all the templates that nature herself used in creating tree, shell, snail. The original form, the Eve of the physical world. So it seemed unfair to me when I read that Eve had been created from Adam, and not the other way around.

IN SOME WAYS SUBWAYS by Aaron Wolfe

There are birds that dance like this I tell myself and switch off the music, disgusted by my animal side, disgusted by my desperation, disgusted by my loneliness. I slouch down in the seat and wait for the next station, head on wall, eyes closed, once again rocking to the beat of a...

SHOULD’VE KNOWN BETTER by Joelle Renstrom

SHOULD’VE KNOWN BETTER by Joelle Renstrom

He was so perfectly 80s with his fluffed-up hockey hair, his high-waisted faded jeans, his whiny croon. When I was eight, I had this irrational notion that he’d written “Right Here Waiting” for me, that he was waiting for me to grow up so we could get married. And, of course, so he could...

THE DARK QUEEN AND I by Scott Devon

August 26, 2011

I read increasingly pretentious books and listen to my Nirvana and Smashing Pumpkins albums so many times it could probably classify as a disorder. I watch The X-Files on TV and sympathize with the monster of the week. I write terrible emo poetry before emo is even a thing.

TOO MUCH, TOO SOON by Alithea Howes

When you’re a dominatrix, you can learn a lot from your clients. And that’s what I learned from Dan. Too much, too fast was pretty much his motto, whether he knew it or not.

HIS NAME WAS ZAC by Lisa Marie Bowman

HIS NAME WAS ZAC by Lisa Marie Bowman

As the semester continued, I would look forward to every Tuesday and Thursday because I knew I’d get to sit behind Zac and stare at his lion’s mane of blonde hair. Some days, he was very talkative in class as he would tell us why another student’s story was or wasn’t honest. ...

THE CRUSHES OF KEVIN by Kevin Kelly

THE CRUSHES OF KEVIN by Kevin Kelly

I would imagine my life with Ponch, with us both coming home from work and recounting our days to each other. Me, writing brilliant works of best-selling fiction, and Erik as Ponch- telling me about all of the people he arrested.

SPANKING BEANIE BABY BOY by Kate Mohler

August 21, 2011

He rolled towards me; I rolled away. He pulled me close and wrapped his arms around me; I rested in his embrace but kept my hands open in thwarted high-fives, unwilling to fully relax. I did not want to have sex with a man who collected stuffed animals. Who would?

ALIVE by Kate Mohler

June 13, 2011

My jetlag has subsided to the point where I don’t feel like crawling into bed for a good night’s sleep at noon, and I’m not flipping pancakes and frying sausage at midnight anymore. My circadian rhythm has returned, along with the five pounds it took to reestablish it.

Editor’s Ramblings

New Look, Same Magazine

In the immortal words of the Brady kids:

When it's time to change, then it’s time to change
Don't fight the tide, come along for the ride, don't you see
When it's time to change, you've got to rearrange
Who you are into what you're gonna be

With the help of writer and webmaster Ian Shane, we have given ourselves a makeover. It was surprisingly easy and relatively painless. On the inside, we are still the same magazine. On the outside, we are slightly more fabulous.

Praxis takes pride in featuring established and up-and-coming writers. We are always looking for new material and fresh voices. Check out our submission guidelines to get an idea of the kind of work we are looking for, and peruse our stories to get a feel for what we like.

We update our content regularly, so read voraciously and check back often.

Cheers!

Andie Ryan
Editor
