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:

  • Product news: In the past few weeks we’ve released a number of new features and updates including recommendations, account security, and more. See all the latest in our recent product news update.

  • Podcasting: We’ve started to answer commonly asked questions about podcasting. Next week at Office Hours will be joined by the product and writer development teams supporting the new wave of podcasting happening on Substack. This week, please share your strategic and tactical questions, so we can offer clear answers next week.

  • New writers: Last week, we met a number of new writers at Office Hours. Who else is new here? Say “hello” in today’s thread and let us know what is on your mind. We can’t wait to meet you! For the veteran Substack writers here, what advice do you have for writers just getting started? Please share in today’s thread.

Got questions or feedback about what’s new? You’re in the right place! Leave a comment in this thread.

We will host a special Office Hours all about podcasting next Thursday. Save Office Hours to your calendar so you don’t miss it.
