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:
Duplicate a post to drafts: Writers often tell us they wish they could create a template for their posts. You can now “duplicate” a post to drafts, which enables writers to easily re-use templates instead of reformatting each post from scratch.
Guest posts: Any writer, on or off Substack, can be added as the guest author of a post or podcast guest. Now, you can simply click the “+” sign under the post title and search for the name of any writer on Substack. If the writer isn’t on Substack yet, enter their email to send them a guest post invite. Learn more.
Gifts: As the holidays quickly approach, encourage your readers to give the gift of great writing this season. Remind readers by using a button when you send your next post. Click on “Buttons” in the toolbar and select “Give a gift subscription” from the options. You can also share a gift-subscription link by adding “/gift” to the end of your Substack URL (example: your.substack.com/gift).
