Founded in January of 2011, Full Stop focuses on debuts, works in translation, and books published by small presses. We believe that books exist in a supercollider, that their meaning and significance arise from high-energy collisions with the people and cultures that read, write, and share them. In an often insular and oscillating field, we seek to highlight the unknown, the precarious, and the as-yet unrealized.

    Podcast #11: Post-Post-Pandemic Travel Writing

    Podcast #11: Post-Post-Pandemic Travel Writing

    This month on the podcast, we’re featuring a few Full Stop editors, as well as Full Stop Fellow Nabil Kashyap, discussing the future of travel writing. As the worst wave of the pandemic continues to batter America, the idea of a reopened world seems very far off. But this gives us some time to reconsider travel writing, its pitfalls, and what might come after the pandemic . . . if there’s really going to be an “after.”

    Podcast #10: Gabrielle Civil & Allison Noelle Conner

    Podcast #10: Gabrielle Civil & Allison Noelle Conner

    This month on the podcast, we’re featuring a bit of a throwback. It’s a conversation between Full Stop contributing editor Allison Noelle Conner and Gabrielle Civil, a poet and conceptual artist. And you might notice there’s no mention of the ongoing pandemic or the protests against police violence and in support of black lives. That’s because this was recorded in the beginning of March, right before the first lockdown orders went in place.







    But everything discussed is still incredibly relevant and most likely even more so than back then — writing in Full Stop last year, Laura Wetherington described Civil’s new book, Experiments in Joy, as “a book about documenting a black woman’s performance art in the face of historical, cultural, and practice-based erasure. This is a book for Civil’s ancestors and for the future. This is a book about reaching out to strangers and inviting them to help imagine the future.”

    Podcast #8: eteam & Turner Canty

    This month, we’re featuring a conversation between Turner Canty, a writer and musician based in Oakland, and Franziska Lamprecht and Hajoe Moderegger, better known as eteam. Full Stop has previously described them as a group that creates “relationally unstable, highly situational art that operates at the intersection of land art, conceptual aesthetics, social practice, and a hyper-saturated use of the Internet.”







    Their new novel, Grabeland, was released this winter by Nightboat Books.
