THE PRAXIS INTERVIEW: Morgan Richter by Andie Nash

THE PRAXIS INTERVIEW: Morgan Richter by Andie Nash

A complaint I sometimes hear from readers, which I feel is pretty valid, is that my books end too abruptly, or that they wrap up too quickly. Fair enough, though I tend to think my endings fall right where it’s most natural for them to fall, which is usually only a few pages after...

THE PRAXIS INTERVIEW: Ned Vizzini by Andie Nash

THE PRAXIS INTERVIEW: Ned Vizzini by Andie Nash

That “Under Pressure” scene looks better on the big screen than it did when it was being filmed. Of course it looked cool then, but when you hear the music being piped in and see the actors taking their positions, you peek behind the curtain in a way you can't with the finished product....

The Praxis Interview: Jonathan Bernstein

The Praxis Interview: Jonathan Bernstein

"The big advantage of writing books over screenplays is that people read them. Maybe not many people, but you write for an audience. Whereas you have no guarantee anyone beyond an agent’s assistant will ever give a screenplay more than a cursory glance before adding it to a vast and towering pile."

Bastard Stepdaughter of Zion

There’s no way to put this delicately—the Rabbi looked like Prince. Yes, Prince. The Minneapolis musician who became an international sensation in the 1980’s. The star of Purple Rain. That Prince.

June 11, 2010

by Andie Nash Character Names It is important that the two leads have charming, bite-sized first names. Acceptable names for male protagonists are Jack, Sam, and Max. These names work regardless of the character’s age, personality, or profession. The rules for naming female characters are a bit more complicated. Is she quirky? Go with...

“A tangled relationship with longing…” Interview with author Clane Hayward

May 7, 2010

If you are a person who devours the written word, as I do, your own shit is never good enough. I mean, try making your way through David Foster Wallace’s "Infinite Jest" and then write your own book. It’s best to start from the position that it’s entirely hopeless. Then anything beyond that is...

The Praxis Interview: Dan Kennedy

The Praxis Interview: Dan Kennedy

The first thing I ever remember writing was when I was twelve. It was a punishment for talking in class or something and I…it’s a long story, but basically I wasn’t talking in class, I made a look, just to myself, at something the teacher said. But everyone started laughing, and this teacher, Mr....

Interview with The Room’s Juliette Danielle

Interview with The Room’s Juliette Danielle

by Andie Nash The cult hit The Room is fast becoming the Rocky Horror of its generation. Originally released in 2003, the film quickly sank like a stone and seemed destined for obscurity…until it was discovered by a small but enthusiastic contingent of movie geeks and irony-loving hipsters. Since then, midnight screenings have been...

The Praxis Interview: Joshua Path

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...

Right Here, Right Now

February 1, 2010
Right Here, Right Now

I spent the first few weeks of summer lolling by the pool, listening to the Dead Milkmen on my headphones and reading Jackie Collins novels while I carefully cultivated the deep, golden tan of my dreams. On cloudy days I’d stay inside and make mix tapes for my friend Zak, who would often drop...

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
Editor
