I'm biased because this is my husband's newsletter, but I happen to think he writes enlightening and witty comments about the arcane and obscure world of rare bookselling. Worth a read, and his weekly lists of new arrivals are always interesting to browse.
Courtney Maum digs deep into all of the weird little questions and conundrums that come up when we're trying to navigate the publishing world. She dispenses good bookish wisdom and answers all the questions you've been afraid to ask. Good fun and real talk for writers!
Austin Kleon and I share a publisher, and I've followed his writing on creativity since way back when. His newsletter has always been a weekly delight in my in-box. We share an interest in collage, notebooks, and good ink, among other things. Go take a look!
A ridiculously fun newsletter about drawing from one of my favorite drawers-of-pictures. Fabulous for kids and adults who want to draw like kids. The new DT Grown-Ups Table is a subscriber-only adult hangout filled with real talk, wonderment, and inspiration. It's my new favorite artsy thing. Join me there!
Nishant Jain's curiosity about art and artists make him the perfect correspondent from the world of urban sketching. In his podcast he does in-depth, long-form interviews with all my favorite artists, and his newsletter is equally interesting and entertaining.
Anne Trubeck runs Belt Publishing, a regional Rust Belt publishing house that publishes some remarkably interesting books. She writes a remarkably interesting newsletter about the state of the publishing world and the struggles (and joys! Sometimes there are joys!) of running a small press. Notes from a Small Press is one of the few newsletters I open and read as soon as it lands in my in-box. It’s honest, funny, and very opinionated. Take a look!
