The profits are too much. They cling,
they clasp, and they grasp. Their speech,
ominous clouds, encase the budding
groves. They sit on their own burs
and taste the stench.

On stage they abjure the “margin miracle,”
primed for the single day decline.
They extract to high fidelity, costs kept
tight. Expectations for growth have piqued
unadjusted for inflation.

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.
