Why subscribe to 500 Words?

500 Words. About living a creative life.

In these posts I share what I’ve learned about making media and selling ideas for a living. The posts are reflections about the day-to-day workflow of creating and breakdowns of specific storytelling skills that will benefit you whether you design, code, podcast, make videos, write novels, articles, or blogs.

Be more creative and have more fun with your work.

When you subscribe you receive an email from me every Sunday. Some weeks you’ll get a 500-word essay by me and on others you’ll get a mini-podcast called “On A Call With…” which is a recorded interview I did with an awesome creator. Subscribers also get a series of posts about writing, the creative process, and how to structure your most creative day. And (there’s more!) you’ll have exclusive access to subscriber-only discussion groups.

To get 500 Words in your inbox every Sunday, subscribe for $5 a month or $50 a year. Cancel any time. Try it out!

Wait, what if I want to get this for free?

If you don’t want to be a paid subscriber you can sign up to the email list and get a semi-regular email from me. You’ll get all the mini-podcasts and many of the essays. I’ll share news of productions I’m working on, book releases, and special events.

500 words? Why 500 words?

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.

500 Words is designed to be read in a gulp, like an espresso or an oyster. Go ahead. Do another shot!

I promise to deliver short-form awesomeness every week.

Thanks.

Lee Schneider
