WHY IS LAURA WRITING ME? by Sandy Feinstein

February 23, 2016

How many inboxes does that woman
(if that’s what she is)
tap to get a rise?
in every sense.

She doesn’t say much
about herself.
What can she say
to get her click?
My name is ___
Tastily multisyllabic.

Dependent, though,
on big words
Married? Love! Forever!
Hotmail of course.

Then try to find her:
search “Laura.”
No hits in trash.
As if you didn’t know
that succubus
feeds on phish.


Sandy Feinstein’s poems have appeared most recently (2015-2016) in Freshwater (print), Tau (print & online), and Gyroscope (online), among others. Most of the time, she enjoys writing of all kinds.

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.
