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 the Substack team together in this discussion thread to answer writer questions for an hour.

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 updates and reminders from the Substack team:

  • New homepage header navigation. You may have noticed that we’ve released new header navigation for publication homepages, designed to merge the best of our layout themes and provide a consistent navigation experience for readers. The new navigation displays links to Home (the publication’s homepage), Archive (all posts), and About (the publication’s About page) by default. Let us know what you think in the comments below!

  • Thinking about going paid? From setting goals to developing a solid strategy, here’s our comprehensive guide to launching paid subscriptions.

  • Reminder: Food Writers Intensive. Applications are currently open for our Food Writers Intensive. This program will celebrate and accelerate 10 fellows who are pushing the boundaries of food writing on Substack. Details and eligibility guidelines here.

We’ll host Office Hours again next week at the same time and place. Save it to your calendar so you don’t miss it.
