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:

  • Autoshare to Twitter: When your Twitter is connected to your Substack and you go to publish a new post, you now have the option to automatically share your new post to Twitter. Sharing your posts on other social media platforms gives potential readers a taste of your writing and can be effective in growing your email list.

  • Writer advice: Robert Reich shared advice on bringing your unique skills together. What writerly advice are you seeking the answer to? Who do you dream of answering your question?

  • Apply for our audio intensive: Our Summer of Sound program is accepting applications until Tuesday, June 21. If you have a podcast or audio project on Substack, apply now!

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

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.
