About the Newspaper

Counterpoint is published three to four times a year by Vermont Psychiatric Survivors and available for free at sites throughout the state. Counterpoint was started in 1985, and prints 8,000 copies, in 24 or 28 page editions. It prints artistic contributors (poetry, prose, drawings, paintings, photos, etc.) along with opinions (personal reflections, letters, columns) and news (reports on what’s happening regarding mental health issues around the state). Every year, Counterpoint also has a creative writing contest with cash prizes; the deadline for entry of poetry or prose (3,000 words maximum) is March 15th.

If you have news to share or a coming event for Counterpoint to cover, contact the editor, Anne Donahue, at [email protected]. We are also always looking for writers and people to help with our editorial board.
