Conversations: Join my new subscriber chat

Today I’m announcing a brand new addition to my Substack newsletter: Conversations — the Nowhere Diary Newsletter subscriber chat.

This is a conversation space in the Substack app that I set up exclusively for my subscribers — kind of like a group chat or live hangout. I’ll post short prompts, thoughts, and updates that come my way, and you can jump into the discussion.

I have always wanted to build a community with direct relationship to my audience — a niche, lo-tech community, safe from algorithms and ads, a quiet place where we can sit down, connect and share stories, get inspired, learn and support each other.

To join our chat, you’ll need to download the Substack app (messages are sent via the app, not email). Turn on push notifications so you don’t miss a chance to join conversation as it happens.

How to get started

  1. Download the app by clicking this link or the button below. Chat is only on iOS for now, but chat is coming to the Android app soon.

Get app

  1. Open the app and tap the Chat icon. It looks like two bubbles in the bottom bar, and you’ll see a row for my chat inside.

  1. That’s it! Jump into my thread to say hi, and if you have any issues, check out Substack’s FAQ.
