Substack lets writers connect with their audience on their own terms and earn money doing it. We make it simple for writers to publish to an email list that they own, get discovered on the web, and charge for subscriptions.

What you read matters.

So we hire people who care deeply about reading and writing.

Subscriptions are better than ads.

The business model matters – subscriptions put readers and writers in charge, and they create an incentive system that fosters great work.

We work in service of writers.

Our teams build both for and with writers, providing Substack writers with the best terms, services, tools, and programs on offer.

We believe in the free press and in free speech.

We do not believe these things can be decoupled. You can read more about our views on content moderation on our blog.

I realized that this is what I needed to be building. A product that elevates lucid thinking; that forges meaningful connection via conversation; that makes space for and celebrates the nuance of the human experience, instead of flattening it.
