Writer Office Hours 📅

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

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

Today we’re gathering the writer community and members of our Community, Product, and Writer Development teams together in a thread to answer writer questions for an hour. 

  • How do you best utilize Substack sections?
    To get started, check out our guide to publication sections.

  • Seeking tips for growing your email list?
    Some inspiration: Alexandre Dewez wrote an annual review breaking down growth on their Substack, Overlooked.

  • Wondering how you encourage reader engagement, and maybe even community?
    Some inspiration: Ilana Wiles, author of Apparently, hosted a “Roll Call” thread just after her publication launched to get to know readers.

Drop your questions in the thread and we’ll do our best to supercharge each other.

Our team will be in the thread today from 9 am - 10 am PST / 12 pm - 1 pm EST answering questions with you.

We’ll host this thread again next week. Save it to your calendar so you don’t miss it.
