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:

  • Polls: Today we are excited to introduce polls on Substack! We have regularly heard writers ask for polls at Office Hours. Now, polls can be added to any Substack post from the “More” drop down in the Editor. Give it a try!

  • Podcasting: Last week we shared a guide to going paid with your podcast on Substack. The first article in a new podcasting 101 series. More from this series is coming soon, and we have exciting audio feature updates to share in the coming weeks too.

  • Resources: Have you visited our Resource center? Here you’ll find insider tips and expert advice for writers on getting started, growing your list, building a community and more.

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.

Note: We experienced technical issues sending out the Office Hours thread via email today. Thank you for your patience!
