STILLPOINT MAGAZINE curates contemporary writers and artists to uncover what is behind the self.

STILLPOINT MAGAZINE inhabits digital spaces to build public knowledge that’s rooted in community psychoanalysis and in collective, multiple, inclusive, radical, and hidden truths. 

In all we do at STILLPOINT MAGAZINE we strive to continue becoming: anti-racist, feminist, queer, ecologically attentive, anti-colonial, and equitable.

We acknowledge that STILLPOINT MAGAZINE is located on Dakota and Anishinaabe Land. Support the landback movement.

STILLPOINT MAGAZINE is a non-profit project committed to paying all its contributors. We publish three open-access issues a year, and two issues for our Supporters. Support our work here.
