Writer Office Hours 📅

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

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

We’re gathering the writer community and members of our Community, Product, and Writer Development teams together in this discussion thread to answer writer questions for an hour today.

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. PST / 1 p.m.–2 p.m. EST. We encourage writers to stick around after the hour and continue the conversation together. 

Some recent updates from the Substack team:

  • We hit a bit milestone. As of this week, there are more than one million paid subscriptions to publications on Substack. Thinking of turning on paid for your publication? Check out our guide to going paid. And if you’re writing about a big milestone in the life of your publication, don’t forget to send us a link to your post at [milestone@substackinc.com].

  • We’ve announced a new writer insurance stipend. Yesterday, we launched Substack Health, a new program designed to help subsidize health care for writers and connect them to insurance plans. Read more about it here.

We’ll be taking a break from Office Hours next week in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday in the U.S. We’ll be back the following week with our Shoutout Thread on Thursday, Dec. 2. Save it to your calendar so you don’t miss it.
