The Praxis Interview: Joshua Path

You listen to songs from the late 60's, early 70's and early 90's--those songs pulled the rug out from under your feet and left you lying flat on your back having conversations with God. People don't write songs like that anymore. Today's songwriters are more concerned about trying to get placement on "Gossip Girl"--or...

Bless These Pants

February 1, 2010

by Joel Zlotnik Paul, his arms full of pants, stood in line with the other men. It looked to him like this was another department store going-out-of-business sale. Only if that were the case, the line would be mostly women and he wouldn’t be standing there in his underwear. Paul held every single pair...

Did You Have a Good Time?

February 1, 2010

Keenan slid his soft palm ever so gently toward the crux of my elbow and said, “You’re gorgeous. And I like that you don’t drink.” This adorable, innocent man thought I was single and sober, which couldn’t have been further from the truth. I never had less than two liters of vodka in my...

My Vendetta Against the Wild Cucumber

I grew increasingly alarmed as the weeds threatened to spoil the view and invade my private little woods. When I began to recognize trees and shrubs along the highways completely enshrouded by this same vine, I feared it was taking over the city.

Are You There God? It’s Me, Lola

February 1, 2010

by Miss Lola Belle I never had my Holy Communion. Shoot, I never dragged feet to even one Catechism class. So, when I was sent to an all-girls Catholic boarding school in 11th grade, I realized partaking in weekly Mass and receiving the sacrament of the Eucharist might prove morally… tricky.

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
