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.

  • Need some inspiration? We recently shared a piece of longform writing advice from Mason Currey, who writes Subtle Maneuvers. It’s the first installment in a recurring writer-to-writer advice column, and the mailbox is officially open. Submit a question for consideration for a future advice column by entering it (with the option to remain anonymous) using this form.

  • Want to know what’s new? We’ve rounded up the latest product improvements at Substack, including writer profiles, paywall functionality, and file embeds (including PDFs). Read our rundown, and bring your questions to the comments section below.

Drop your questions in the thread by leaving a comment, and we’ll do our best to share knowledge and tips. Our team will be answering questions and sharing insights with you in the thread today from 10 a.m.–11 a.m. PDT / 1 p.m.–2 p.m. EDT.

Next week, we’ll host our monthly Shoutout Thread, designed to help writers discover and share great writing on Substack. Stop by to share what you’ve been reading and inspired by recently.

Save it to your calendar so you don’t miss it.
