Publicize Your Substack (without feeling icky)
Once you learn the ins and outs of publicity, it will feel much less icky, overwhelming, and confusing. It can actually be enjoyable. Promise. Doing publicity can also teach you a lot about your work, strengthen your writing, and help you discover what you really want from your writing career.

What qualifies me to teach this workshop?
(You should ask this of everyone you work with!)
The guidance I give you is based directly on the advice Substack gave me. No marketing tricks. No gimmicks.
I also share with you my experience as
the creator of two bestselling, featured Substack publications (Writers at Work with Sarah Fay and Cured: The Memoir);
a member of Substack’s Product Lab;
a freelance writer at The New York Times and elsewhere;
a former advisory editor at The Paris Review; and
a creative writing professor at Northwestern University.
No one else has the relationship with Substack that I do and specializes in the unique nature of the platform, how it can be used to earn an income, and how it complements traditional publishing and all aspects of a writer’s career.
