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. PDT / 1 p.m. – 2 p.m. EDT. We encourage writers to stick around after the hour and continue the conversation together.
Some updates and reminders from the Substack team:
Introducing Chat: Substack Chat is a new space for writers and creators to host conversations with their subscribers. Now available in iOS, you can host quick commentary and brainstorm ideas on the go with photo replies. Think of it like your own private social network where you make the rules. Take a tour of Chat and get started in four simple steps.
Introducing mentions: It’s now possible to link any mentions of other Substack writers or publications in your own Substack posts. Simply search to tag writers and publications in the Substack network from within the editor using the “@” key. Learn more here.
Now in beta: Cross-posting. The new cross-posting feature provides a way for you to share another publication’s post with your audience. With this feature, you’ll be able to add your commentary and share the post with your audience via email. Learn more about cross-posting by watching this demo video or visiting our Support Center.

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.
