I finally created a Substack Newsletter. Here is today’s post:

I put this at the bottom of my first post:

You are subscribed to Fiddleheads & Floss free newsletter. Content for this newsletter will always be FREE.

In short, he Fiddleheads & Floss Newsletter, is a great way for me to:

  • Reach out to my readers in a more personal way
  • Potentially reach a bigger audience
  • Send out a portion of my Medium articles with a “continue reading” button
  • Separate posts into those that go to free subscribers and those that goes to paying subscribers

So what is the difference between the free version and the paying one?

The Newsletter will involve the following:

Fiddleheads & Floss brings you articles about writing, poetry, and living your best life.
Focus topics include:

  • Inspiration / social issues / news
  • Writing practices / prompts
  • Marketing strategies
  • Parenting, mental wellness
  • Personal stories
  • Medium stories, articles, poetry
  • Blog updates
  • Information about my available books and eBooks
  • Book recommendations

The paying subscriber will get a more in-depth experience:

The Poet’s Lair is a more personal experience. In addition to all of the content of the Fiddleheads & Floss Newsletter, members of The Poet’s Lair will receive:

  • Writing articles and in-depth help to keep you inspired and in that creative sweet spot
  • Poetry news, information about contests and literary journals for people who are working to get their poetry or short fiction published
  • Advice and information to help poets and creative writers
  • Inside vision and experiences of the poets’ life
  • Poetry tutorials for various poetic forms
  • Educational materials for poetic device and literary device to improve the depth of your writing
  • Sneak peaks and discounts on my books and eBooks
  • So much more — because these paying subscribers are both serious about their own work and big fans of mine.
  • Hopefully mentoring and workshopping services or events for The Poet’s Lair members.
  • A strong focus on inspiration, productivity, creativity, and mental wellness as it pertains to living the life of a creative and/or poet
