Our Journey Together

It wouldn't be Skinny Dipper if we didn't do this together. 

In everything we do, from our stories to our in-person events, we strive to be authentic, vulnerable, and transparent. And from the very beginning, this journey has been driven by the trust and engagement of our readers and followers. So let it continue. 


We can only afford to print this subscription if we reach a breakeven point of subscribers. That number is 200. Help us get there! 


Number updated daily:  62/200

About The New Model

Our new workbook-style format combines our proven brand of beautiful, authentic storytelling with interactive exercises that facilitate mindfulness and self-reflection.

It's like Hightlight's Magazine for adults in the modern world.

We hope readers interact with the magazine like it’s a two-way conversation — wherein they can write down thoughts and reflections in the pages of the magazine itself, and build a relationship with each issue. 

Our goal is to provide readers with an opportunity to connect more deeply with their inner selves and the world around them.

Why This Matters

We are doing this because our humanity is at stake.


Amidst digital overload, the political shouting match, and the constant pursuit of more, we’re left feeling numb and distant. We can’t focus. We can’t connect. We can’t find meaning, for more than a moment. 

That's why we've embarked on our mission to restore authenticity and mindfulness to media; to foster self-discovery and human connection through storytelling.


Yes, we are a publication. But why not a social movement, too? We want Skinny Dipper to be a beacon that inspires and connects people who rebel against the current mode of living, and instead push for deeper existence as a complicated and deliberate practice.


Our new subscription helps our readers reject the endless drone of the status quo and engages them with stories and tools for slower, deeper living.  


We believe the world needs us naked. We believe the world needs more skinny dippers. It's time to dive in.

Skinny Dipper Magazine 
exists to catalyze self-discovery and human connection through storytelling.

Be bold and act like we’re invited, so that when they open those velvet barriers we walk right in with a nod. Lose sleep over the music we have forgotten, and leave if there is neither beauty nor sadness. Ask questions over dinner that require pencil and paper to answer. Print. Less screens and thicker calluses. Practice our dance while doing the dishes, and stay out there late. Unbutton around corners and fall off the bike, but stay on the ground and admire the mark we made on the street. Full burritos and well-worn maps. Wonder who designs salad dressing labels because we have some ideas. Load our words into a new canon, curse traffic, and show up unannounced because we know our friends. Get a double and see it twice. Fetishisize the past and be aliens together. Find a new way home. Kick ourselves for missing, clap for caring. Go wild with our look because we aren’t there yet. Speak with the flight attendants and hope that the runway below is full so that we can circle above the clouds at golden hour. Remember Ivan Ilyich and the favorite books of our friends. Tug hard on the tension between absolute narcissism and crippling self-doubt and find your dream in the middle. Push through and search abroad to see if this is there too. Go simple, go solo, go now. The world or nothing. Because if just one piece of this works, then this is forever.
