Newsletters and New Writing Formats

Bookmarked On projects, newsletters, products, and formats by Patrick Tanguay (Sentiers Media)

Instead of structuring something solid out of thin air and based on reckons, Peter and I settled on the idea of working on quarterly projects in parallel, which would occasionally be collaborations between us. So basically a more open form than my four publications but with a more “official” rhythm

  • “special projects” to combat subscription fatigue
  • seasons or series of newsletters and projects
  • zines and reports

I think “season” or “series” will also be a big thing. My hunch is that seasons or series on a topic have a different feel for buyers and sellers, a finite length of things to read / listen to / view / pay for but also a finite amount of work / creation to consider / price as well as a more defined thing to sell ads (see podcasts) / sponsors / find a financial partner for.
