I've been publishing newsletters since before everyone started publishing newsletters. Learn more about them, get stuck into the archives or become a subscriber.

Active newsletters

Right now, I write and publish two active newsletters to 1500+ people. You can click through to find out more or subscribe for free to start receiving one or both of them. And don't panic – you can unsubscribe or switch at any time.  

Draft Mode

Biweekly, 2013–

Every edition of Draft Mode is full of writing advice, recommendations and links to the best writing-related content I can find. My longest-running and most popular newsletter, it's for anyone who wants to hone their craft and build an audience.


Monthly, 2023–

Soon to launch, Minifictions features original stories from yours truly. Each edition is its own collection of very short fiction, life fragments and moments in time. It's for people who like quick reads with space to fill in the gaps.  

Inactive newsletters

These newsletters are the ones that came and went, mostly on purpose. You can still see what they were all about and trawl through previous issues.


Pop-up, 2021

Pieces was a pop-up newsletter that lasted for three weeks and documented my home-based writing retreat, where I spent an entire week in my shed trying to make progress on my second novel.
