Home » About


7STOPS is a monthly online magazine. Run by Dustin Coates and Josh T. Franco, it was founded in 2011 with Meagan Elliott, joined by Kate Gavino. The name 7STOPS comes from the number of subway stops Dustin has on his commute from Greenpoint to Flatiron each morning. Every month, in the hopes that others are looking for new and interesting reading material when not playing Cut the Rope, we publish seven variations on a theme.

We welcome submissions from around the globe. If you’ve got something you want to share, please contact us at editors@7stopsmag.com.
