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 Land. Support the landback movement.
