Writer Office Hours 📅

Have questions about publishing, growing, or going paid on Substack? 

The Substack team, and your fellow writers, are here to help! 

Today we’re gathering the writer community and members of our Community, Product, and Writer Development teams together in a thread to answer writer questions for an hour. 

  • What tactics and experiments have you tried to grow your free list?
    Perhaps the number one question we get from writers is: how do I grow? Last week, as part of Substack Grow, we covered ideas on how to create those big moments as well as a variety of routine tactics you can invest in for steady growth. Writers have implemented some of the tactics and they are working.

  • Looking for more ways to connect directly with your readers?
    Consider trying a Substack thread. Some inspiration: New Public created an open thread asking their readers what they are up to and what would be most useful to them. Then, they synthesized it in a wonderful post.

Drop your questions in the thread and we’ll do our best to supercharge each other.

Our team will be in the thread today from 9 am - 10 am PDT / 12 pm - 1 pm EDT answering questions with you.

We’ll host this thread again next week. Save it to your calendar so you don’t miss it.
