We're making a push to bring more U.K.-based writers to Substack, helped by our new head of writer partnerships for the region, Farrah Storr.
Farrah is such a great editor, exciting to have her on board. Great that you’re focusing on British writers, I enjoyed Substack Grow but almost everyone on there was US-based. I write Bolton and Beyond, a newsletter of places to go and things to do for families in the North West of the UK. I also subscribe to The Mill which you mention above 👆 and is a brilliant local journalism newsletter about Manchester.
We have SO many wonderful writers at London Writers' Salon writing on Substack. A few come to mind:
- Jenny writes 'Murder, She Cooked' - sharing a recipe each week based on the show: https://murdershecooked.substack.com/
- Nicola writes The Single Supplement - because single women deserve a newsletter of their own: https://thesinglesupplement.substack.com
- Sofia writes Some Little Language - about intercultural communication, language, rituals, books, films, and the ideas that connect them: https://somelittlelanguage.substack.com
- Susannah reflects on the writing life from a British writer in Mexico City https://susannahrigg.substack.com
- Beth writes Curious Minds - curious stories from pop culture, business and history: https://bethcollier.substack.com
Lots more but that's a nice taste!
British here too! Yorkshire born & bred, currently writing out of Scotland. I'm delighted my countryfolk are making more and more of an appearance & I'll keep encouraging as many as I can...
Great to hear Substack sees potential in the UK…
I have recently started writing about football (soccer!) from a British but also international perspective. This platform is really helping me to focus on the writing without having to worry about anything else, like distribution for example. Thank you!
I'm a British based substack writer. Though my blog, Strange Tidings, is about the U.S economy.
Great initiative! I’m a UK-based writer, publishing Allegorical on here. I seek to show how ordinary things in life have a much deeper meaning and importance that everyone can access. Do check out my Substack if you’re interested!
I know many potential British contributors !
As I writer/cook I’d love an Ottolengi newsletter. I also love Fucsia Dunlop, Ruby Tandoh, and Olia Hercules, to name a few.
Can you do us a favour and add an option for only UK contributors when browsing writers? I'm new round these parts so might be missing something, but every time I search the results are consumed by US contributors (no disrespect to them...)
Excellent ! Thanks for the mention and keen to check out some of the other writers here. I really enjoy The Ruffian by Ian Leslie . ianleslie.substack.com . Happy to pass on a little of what I have learnt over the past year if of any help. Suzanne
This is great news, I am a new writer and have just joined up to Substack writing about adventures in the North of Scotland: https://neilmapes.substack.com/ - lots of great writers here :)
I’m an American expat living in Yorkshire - my newsletter has a very both-sides-of-the-pond vibe: runawayart.substack.com
Very exciting! I'm a London based architect and have a small newsletter musing about all things historical and architectural londonarchitect.substack.com
Welcome. I will be moving to London next year I hope lol. So welcome.
Hamish McKenzie, what a beautiful reading. I am grateful to support this Chanel.
