Prague Pulse is a magazine founded by English speakers in Prague to serve as a creative outlet for the expansive community of expats, tourists, and Czech natives living in Prague that have stories to tell. We focus on social, cultural and political events around the Czech Republic as well as covering issues of life abroad and travel.
Editor in Chief
Seneca Garrison grew up traveling with her family, living in seven countries by the time she graduated high school. These years abroad formed her love of writing, particularly writing about travel and cultures. After graduating with a degree in Creative Writing from the University of Colorado in Denver she moved to Prague to satiate her love of living overseas. She splits her time between writing and editing, teaching English, and working on film and television productions. During college, she was a journalism intern with Bolivian Express Magazine in La Paz, Bolivia. ‘Prague Pulse’ was born from Seneca’s nostalgia for her internship days and a need for a creative outlet to break up the stress of teaching.

Caroline hails from North Carolina, and yes, she’s heard “Caroline from Carolina” a million times before, and has found it to be a helpful way for getting people to remember her name. She has a B.A. in Journalism & Mass Communication from UNC-Chapel Hill, and moved to Prague in 2014 with her fat cat, Evee, who is the worst travel companion. Currently, Caroline is a copywriter for an online marketing company in central Prague, in addition to teaching private English lessons. When she’s not working (a rare sight), she can be found writing and editing articles for Prague Pulse, eating pizza, or enjoying a Pilsner or three with friends.

Stijn van Venrooij
The moment she set foot in Prague for the first time a couple of years ago, Stijn fell head over heels in love with the city. Although she is born and raised in the Netherlands, where she also recently finished her Bachelor’s in International Communication & Media, she strives to spend as much time abroad as she possibly can – having to leave her beloved ukulele behind being the hardest part of that. As Prague Pulse’s brand new intern, she can combine two of her biggest passions, exploring and writing, while enjoying the Czech summer.
