Writer Office Hours 📆

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

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

Each week on Thursdays, we’ll gather the writer community and members of our Community, Product, and Writer Development teams together in a thread like this one to answer writer questions for an hour.

  • Thinking about customizing your publication?
    Check out how 3 by 7, Julie Rost Yoga, and Vancouver Tech Journal have customized their Substacks with unique fonts, background colors, and custom domain.

  • How might you get your first 10 subscribers? Or grow to 10,000 subscribers?
    Some inspiration: In a thoughtful recent post Ali Abouelatta breaks down how they grew their Substack publication to 10,000 subscribers.

  • Wondering how to structure a going paid launch?
    To get started, check out our Going Paid guide. Your fellow writers in this thread will have tips, too!

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.
