The Cheerleading Skirt: A Cautionary Tale to Remember the Next Time You Consider Doing a Good Deed

When I actually put effort into something, as opposed to my usual lazy half-assed attempts at most things, I do it right. No trashbox Ricky’s Halloween Store cheerleader costume for me and mine! No, I had to find an actual cheerleading supply website and damn if I didn’t pick an amazing skirt. I paired...

Off Panel

May 3, 2010

“Well kids, enjoy yourselves and don’t get hurt.” I stood up, taking pride in my calm and friendly departure, and nearly walked into Ella. She was gripping a handful of recent Force Girl issues and looking good in my ex-wife’s smooth hemp dress. For some reason she’d kept the mask on.

Gone Before Their Time

Network TV is a fickle mistress. Television history is littered with shows that were canceled before their time. I won’t go into the Joss Whedon debates about Firefly and Dollhouse; these have been argued to death elsewhere. The following is a list of shows deserving of a second look.

But everyone started laughing, and this teacher, Mr....

I’m Not Buying That Cat Sake Anymore

What a great evening. By tacit agreement, no mention was made of the late-night calls she takes from Kuala Lumpur or of the strange notebook (all in French, for some reason) I found hidden in the basement. If Liza is a spy or a smuggler of some sort, we both felt it prudent to...

Now, you must understand that I was young and naïve on that morning three weeks ago. I know that people right out of school aren't supposed to get jobs that pay $60,000 a year, particularly when they wrote their Masters thesis on comparisons of Judeo-Christian and Post Modern conceptions of suffering as exhibited in...

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
