New: Substack writer workshop series

Over the next few weeks, we’re hosting a series of writer workshops around the topics we’ve heard you want to learn more about. Each workshop features a Substack writer that we think will provide a unique perspective on the topic. They’ll share their learnings, you’ll ask questions, and we’ll all have a good time.

You can find a list of workshops on our Events page. All workshops are free to attend and are less than an hour.

Here’s the first batch:

💌 Tuesday, May 26th, 11am PT (UTC-7) - Getting your first 1,000 email signups

Roll up your sleeves, it’s time to get scrappy. Scott Hines of Action Cookbook will share how he successfully grew his email list on Substack in less than a year.

RSVP May 26th

💰 Thursday, June 4th, 11am PT (UTC-7) - Paid launch 101

RSVP June 4th

👫 Thursday, June 11th, 11am PT (UTC-7) - Making friends with your subscribers

Who are these people that signed up for your email list, and what do they want? Erin Moon of The Swipe Up will talk about getting to know your subscribers, helping them get to know each other, and building a community around your list.
