Happy Friday, Newsletter Festers!
Are you ready for next week? We’re practicing all the tech stuff and making sure all the speakers are good to go. I practically promise something will go wrong.
That’s ok, though.
Because we launched a Newsletter Fest Community on Slack. Join today to start engaging with attendees.
We created it to be a live resource during the event but also to serve as a place to engage after it’s over.
Any channel suggestions? So far we have some for use during the event (discussion, support, etc.) but we’ve also added an introductions and a newsletter jobs channel to allow people in this industry to interact and share. Reply and let us know if you have any ideas.
Also, Dave Verwer of iOS Dev Weekly (and founder of Curated), whose recent 500th issue was the impetus of this celebratory event will be joining us for a quick Q&A during our opening ceremony.
Plus, Curated CEO JD Graffam will be revealing information about our plans for launching paid newsletters (hint: we’ve decided not to take a commission). There’s a reason. Register for the kickoff and learn why.
The Fastest Way To Register For Sessions
The event links below now take you directly to Zoom’s sign up pages, which should speed up the process. You can use the links below and Zoom should save your info after your first signup, which makes signing up for more much less painful.
Note: Registration will stay open until the start of each session and we’ll be releasing on-demand replays in the weeks following the event.
Thank you to the people who helped us understand that the Notion embeds were slowing you down. Seriously. You know who you are.

The Curated account contest is underway and waiting for your entry. This is a great way to test out how Curated helps users collect links, curate content, draft commentary, send, and publish a searchable web archive of their newsletters (this newsletter was quickly built using Curated).
Entering this contest is 100% free.
The three entries with the most votes will win 12 months of Curated. The three runner-ups will win 30% off a year of Curated. See the Official Rules for more details. This contest ends April 15 at 11:59 p.m. EDT.
So far we have one entry. 😯
