April 18, 2014

In retrospect, this seems odd, although most children can fall instantaneously and completely in love with anything. But hockey was more than puppy love.

WHAT MY CAT TAUGHT ME ABOUT LOVE by Joelle Renstrom

March 25, 2014

I never meant to get a cat. My college boyfriend’s uncle found her when he was mowing the lawn. She was tiny, clearly the dumped runt of the litter, and she was cross-eyed. He planned to take her to the pound the next day. It took some doing—she’d have to live in my boyfriend’s...

THE ART OF COMPLAINING by Joelle Renstrom

September 2, 2013

My friends and I spent a l lot of time emailing one another to complain about work and to report the latest unbelievable offenses our employers had committed. At some point, my undergraduate poetry training kicked in and I began complaining in haiku. Three of my friends, Elissa, Dave, and Chris, also took to...

SHOULD’VE KNOWN BETTER by Joelle Renstrom

The Gringo’s Dilemma

April 6, 2011

I took a small boat with a few other passagers from Puno, a modest city that dumps an astonishing amount of trash into the lake. The most popular spot on the Peruvian side of Titicaca is the floating island of Uros. Everything on the island—houses, canoes, paddles, baskets, even the island itself—is made out...

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
