#375 Farrah Storr: Are Newsletters the New Magazines?

Come and say hello to Farrah and I on my Substack The Hyphen'! https://thehyphen.substack.com/p/a-conversation-with-farrah-storr?s=w

Today we are talking about writing, career changes, magazines and Substack newsletters! Some exciting news also that I have launched my very own SUBSTACK newsletter! Check it out here: https://thehyphen.substack.com/ If you sign up, Every month, you’ll receive my Hyphen round-up for free, and for paying subscribers, you’ll gain access to the full archive, a monthly book recommendation that we can all read together, a regular Q&A instalment and book giveaways. You’ll also be supporting all the work I do and give away for free! :)

My guest today is Farrah Storr, the new Head of UK writer partnerships at Substack. She is the former editor in chief of Cosmopolitan & Elle UK and the author of the book The Discomfort Zone: How to Get What You Want by Living Fearlessly. I interviewed her for this podcast back in 2018 and I’m excited to invite her back on to discuss what’s changed, what she is up to, including her new role at Substack. She also has her own newsletter: Things Worth Knowing where she covers a wealth of different topics from friendship to love to career - which lots of wisdom in there. We talk about why she left magazines, the current landscape for creators, the power of newsletters and having paying subscribers, and how to navigating an evolving digital world. Hope you enjoy!
