Ships That Pass in the Night

December 3, 2010

I’m stuck, what do you say to a movie stunt man? “Wow, that must be dangerous/exciting/boring after a while”? Everyone he meets must say that. I settle on, “What was the hardest thing you’ve had to do?” He thinks for a second, then replies, “Falling from a thirty story building.” He pulls out a cell-phone; there are...

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!
