The Significance of Us

June 11, 2010

by Donatienne Voneche

Whether this significance of being here behind
This jigsaw shouts at me do not follow
Whether the illusory of our weave
Might make us to float without shadows
I shall be the cord of your harp
The sound won’t be as hollow as the binding of our previous sorrow
The touch won’t be a finger at my lows but a rapturous melody towards gripping to each other’s palm.

Donatienne Voneche was born in Haiti and grew up in Belgium with an international family of 24 adopted brothers and sisters. She has a BA in Video and Film from the Surrey Institute of Art & Design (UK). Donatienne says: “I acquired a sense of freedom in literature through various experiences such as living with the Tuareg (a nomadic North African tribe) in the Sahara desert at the age of 21.” Donatienne lives in Hove, near Brighton, England.

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
