Being independent shouldn’t mean being alone.
Substack Go is a month-long program for Substack writers looking to supercharge their publishing efforts. Participating writers will be connected to a small squad of their peers to keep going and building their publications, together.

The support system writers need to build momentum.
During the month of February, Substack will connect participants to a small squad of eight to ten fellow Substack writers for four weeks of support and structured guidance.

Writers will leave the program with an understanding of Substack fundamentals, a squad of peers to turn to, and an established writing and publishing cadence.

The first program ran in February of 2022. Join the waitlist for the next iteration of Substack Go.Join the waitlist
Program overview.
Go kickoff
Tuesday, February 1
One 60-minute session, offered three times to accommodate different time zones.
At the kickoff session, we’ll introduce you to the small squad that you will meet with throughout Go. Writers will be paired based on category, region, or writing stage, as well as time availability. We’ll help writers get to know their squads and set and share personal goals.
Daily Tips
Delivered to inboxes daily throughout the month of February.
Participating writers will be added to a private publication just for Substack Go writers. There, the Substack team will publish daily bite-sized tips on a strategic theme.
  • Week 1: Developing goals for your publication
  • Week 2: Differentiating your writing
  • Week 3: Touring the Substack editor
  • Week 4: Finding and engaging with readers
Friday, February 4, 11, 18, and 25
Weekly 45-minute sessions, offered three times each week to accommodate different time zones.
Each week the Substack team and writer squads will gather together for facilitated critiques called “Roundtables.” Treat the Writer Roundtables as you would a newsroom or writing studio—a space for you to seek feedback on a key part of your publication from fellow writers.
Participating writers are encouraged to carve out time to publish consistently while participating in Substack Go. Whether you publish monthly, weekly, daily or somewhere in between, the experience will be most meaningful for writers who maintain their drumbeat. Events like Writing Hour offer extra accountability and space to write with fellow writers
Who is Substack Go for?
Go is for writers getting started or restarted, eager to set the foundation for publishing regularly in community with fellow writers.

Writers are required to have a Substack publication and be in compliance with the Content Guidelines.
To flourish, writers need a support structure.
If you’d like to go deeper into your writing and publishing practice, or to kickstart a new one, you don’t have to go at it alone.
