A Gift From The Community

We couldn’t be more excited to welcome Nathan Baschez and Paul Smalera to Compound this week. They both work on one of the (the?) most trafficked substacks on the internet: everything.substack.com

They’ll be giving free access to the bundle to anybody in the community who’s interested. That’s a $200/yr value! We’re beyond grateful. Please DM Stew on Slack to be added to the list. 

Upcoming Event 

Our next event is a Round Table Draft Discussion on Sunday 5/24, 12 PST / 3 EST. We already have 14 RSVPs! If you’d like to join, hop in the #general channel and indicate your availability. This will be a casual event and opportunity for us to work through some drafts together. Come prepared with a rough idea for what you’d like to write about next. We’ll each have 3 minutes to share our idea with the group and ask for any specific feedback or support you might need. Calendar invites coming shortly.

Writing Resources 

Over the coming months, we’ll be building out a resource center to help writers produce better long-form content online. The first resource is a video recording and recap of the Lindsey Quinn Q&A from last week. There are quite a few gold nuggets in there so we wanted to make it easy to reference long into the future!

That’s all for this week, folks.
Stew & Dan
