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

Simon

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)

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.
