Laura Orem, whom you know as our correspondent from Red Lion, PA, writes to announce a fine new literary journal, Praxilla. Here's what she says:
Praxilla seeks to provide opportunity for writers to offer the deep insight that comes only by wringing as much as possible out of language. We are dynamic, free from the confines of physical space and temporal deadlines. Works are published quarterly. Poetry and narrative are allowed to live and breathe as the vigorous, critical (if always suspicious) forces they have played since the beginning of human culture.
Our exciting inaugural issue features poetry from David Lehman, Katy Evans-Bush, Richard Garcia, Jennifer Michael Hecht, Terence Winch, Amy Tudor, Mary Carroll-Hackett, Charles C. Brooks III, Cecily Angleton, Nancy White, Karren Alenier, Richard Harteis, Dan Cuddy, Jim Cummins, David Schloss, Ed Zanhiser, Ethan Fischer, Jeremy Hughes, Jody Bolz, Michael Graber, Sabine Pascarelli, Sonja James, Yermiyahu Ahron Taub, Yvette Neisser Moreno, John McKernan, Yoko Danno, and Maria Mazzioti Gillan; and prose from Deirdra Baldwin, Mina Brunyate, and Phaye Poliakoff-Chen.
We will be reading for our next issue from January 1- February 1, 2010.
Thanks, Laura, and congratulations. Sharpen your pencils!
