On Deck Writer Fellowship (Sponsored)

The On Deck Writer Fellowship is an eight-week remote program for internet writers who want to improve their writing and grow an audience. The Fellowship combines:

  • Weekly small-group writing workshops facilitated by expert writers and editors from our team to help hone your craft.
  • Tactical sessions and guest lectures focused on finding your voice and niche, growing your audience, and monetizing your work. Some of our recent speakers include Marginal Revolution author Tyler Cowen, The Profile author Polina Marinova, Substack's Head of Writer Experience Nadia Eghbal, and Lenny's Newsletter author Lenny Rachitsky.
  • An engaged, creative community of incredible writers from around the world to keep you inspired and accountable.
    In the words of ODW1 alum Lyle McKeany, "It's not an overstatement to say that ODW has changed the trajectory of my writing life. I know that sounds hyperbolic, but it's not."

We're currently offering special early-bird pricing of $1,990 for our third cohort, which kicks off April 17. Apply here.
