Topic: Teaching magic in magazines
Message: Posted by: aussiemagic (May 22, 2006 08:47AM)
A magazine wants me to teach them some simple magic for their readers. Magic to impress girls. What are the boundaries for this type of thing?
What can and can't I teach? If I was to teach the paddle move or some form of coin vanish, would that be going to far?

Thanks

I would try to personalize some tricks that have *already* been published on magazines and that probably are recognized as "publishable" by the magic community. Not to copy but to avoid the bad rumors.
Another idea: buy one of those magic boxes in the toy shops and describe some of them (they always contain the sams stuff)

And you are doing this why?

Can't you think of a more respectable way to earn a few dollars?

Have you read Scot's Discoverie of Witchcraft? Lots of goodies and lots of history too. Plenty of interesting articles to write. Magic is a vast subject and it is difficult to offer folks stuff they can use till you know where they are and what they want to accomplish. Bar bets and puzzles seem a safe bet.
