Sounds great. My only worry is that I am nowhere near as hilarious in real life as my writing suggests.

Hilarity is nice, but honest and informative expression trumps it. No pun intended. Best wishes, Larry.

This is wonderful! I'm curious to see if there will be any meetups in Massachusetts.

Yeah that's true, but I'm in a small town. I would have to host one at a nearby city then. :-)

I've already signed up for the Amsterdam meetup with Wesley a while ago. Really looking forward to it. And another great thing is, I'm having a photowalk with a subscriber in the afternoon. Sounds like a perfect day, right?

I'm interested in being a host here in Atlanta -- really glad to see this!

A group of us Substackers did one in San Fran a few months back. Went well!!

Sounds great. I can sense a lot of a murder mystery nights spawning from this 🤣

No ACTUAL murder mysteries, please and thank you.

Would love to attend another meetup of writers in Toronto. Glad to see Substack putting more energy behind writers connecting in-person.

Expand full comment

Hey, fellow Torontonian!

Expand full comment

Not quite Toronto but close enough for me. More like North north of TO.

Super excited about our Amsterdam meetup! Great little old school bar, good vibes, like minds, it’ll be great!

Expand full comment

Me too, will be nice I guess. Must be!

i’d love to chat with some local michigan and/or texas folks... substackian’s seem to eyeroll at blogging a lot less than the average joe (certainly bc we’re all similarly deranged)

Where in TX?

Houston area!

I’m in hill country! There HAS to be more ATX peeps out there??

This is great! I tried to organize a Seattle meetup this summer but travel and illness meant we couldn’t achieve critical mass. I’ve since met so many more writers in the area. I appreciate this support to finally make it happen.

Please add me to the list. I'm on Whidbey. If you post a note, I can tag a few more.

I love this! Who’s in DC/Georgetown? Do we have a host here yet?

I'd be happy to host a meet-up for Western New York. Depending on the number of folks who want to come and the time of year, I can host at my house, which is centrally located in downtown Ithaca, NY, or I can arrange a space at a local watering hole, or by the lake.

I write Let Your Life Speak and have been writing on Substack since January 2021. I've been to a meet-up in NYC, which was delightful fun, but now that I work full-time outside of the house getting down to the city, particularly in the middle of the week, is impossible. But Western New York is a pretty vast area, so I'm guessing I'm not alone in wishing there was an opportunity for writers out this way that is more accessible. I'm also close enough to PA that we could roll in some Northwestern PA folks as well. Us folks in the Northern Appalachians have to stick together.

I'm also in western (Rochester) NY. and I've submitted an application to Substack to host a virtual writer meetup to start. Then we can work out in-person events. My Substack is currently called Creativity Nation but I'm evolving it to a new title and focus.

San Francisco Bay Area folks, let’s go!

(Seriously, I am going to apply to help host.)

I considered applying for San Jose Bay Area but SF isn't that far so count me in!

Expand full comment

Awesome! I’m starting to work on an application. What would you like to get out of a meet-up? 🙂

Hey there! A Substack meet up is happening in the East Bay next month!

Connecting with other writers, exchanging work

Hi Sam - I am located in the bay area/SF. Would love to be a part of this! Just got into writing + a product guy in the bay area working on a startup idea, wanting to talk to fellow writers about it for feedback! Let me know if we can connect.

Expand full comment

You bet! I submitted a proposal for a meet up and will keep you in the loop, Sumanth! 🙂🤞

Expand full comment

Any chance I can borrow 10-15 minutes of your time to get feedback even before your proposal gets accepted :) Appreciate your response!

Expand full comment

Sure, Sumanth. We can find some time to connect.
