10 things for writers this week

Hey, can I send you 10 Things for Writers?

Every week, I curate the web’s best reads and resources for writers and creative entrepreneurs. Jeff Goins calls it his “favorite newsletter for writers,” and sometimes my dad reads it, too. I’d love to deliver it to you every Sunday.

“Yours is the only email I open consistently each week. I love the treasures you find, and you give me hope that not everything I sign up for will result in spammy sales messages or regurgitated blog content!”

Chris Gould | author

“I don’t subscribe or stay subscribed to people’s newsletters easily but Chantel’s 10 Things for Writers is a welcome addition to my inbox each Sunday. Her ability to curate interesting, relevant, and fun content that writers care about is a real gift.”

Kirsten Wreggitt | author, Before I Let You Go

“Always worth an open.”

Dave Moldawer | writer and editor
