500 Words. For writers working across media. 

500 Words is about storytelling that spans different forms of media. If you consider yourself a writer-hyphenate, then 500 Words is for you. You'll find a home here whether you work on novels, non-fiction, podcasts, movies, or television, and especially if you are interested in shape-shifting work that breaks through boundaries, like novels that become podcasts or television scripts that turn into short stories. 

As a subscriber you’ll get insights from me and the 500 Words community about making media, selling ideas for a living, and inspiration to keep your creative work alive and thriving.

500 Words is a multi-media experience. (Of course!)  I post essays, short-form podcasts, and host discussion threads that are for subscribers only.

Brevity is the Soul of the Newsletter

When I post, I keep things short. Each post is designed to be read on your phone, between floors on a long elevator ride, or on Sunday mornings while waiting for the other people to show up for brunch.
