Office Hours: Obstacles and support 🏔️

What holds you back from producing your best work on Substack?

In this thread are Kevin, Maggie, and Kerianne from the Substack Services team. We run writer support programs such as Substack Defender (legal support) and Substack Health (health insurance support—applications close in two weeks!).

We’d love to hear about what holds you back as an independent writer. Our team and your fellow writers are here to help.

Join in and share any thoughts on the following questions:

  • What holds you back from writing consistently?

  • What hesitations, anxieties, or challenges get in the way of producing your best work?

  • What would help you go independent as a writer?

The Substack Services team will be on this thread today from 10 a.m.–11 a.m. PST / 1 p.m.–2 p.m. EST to learn about the needs of writers and respond to ideas.
