    Happy Sunday to 4,900 motivated writers 👋🏼 

    How’s everyone doing? Well, I'm a few pounds heavier than last week. I had my first proper American Thanksgiving last week. What a holiday.

    And the food! Wow. Marshmallows on sweet potatoes. It sounds so wrong, but it feels so right. Definitely my fave.

    But seriously, I'm so thankful for all of you. Pulling these opportunities together for you is the highlight of my week. 🤗

    It’s an absolute beauty of a weekend here in Austin. Much needed after a gloomy few weeks!! I need to get outside and enjoy some sunshine 😊

    Let’s get to it! ⬇️ ⬇️


    So, what do we have this week?

    1️⃣ A pretty cool new writing assistant, Moonbeam 

    2️⃣ 23 calls to pitch, in a fellowship 📢

    3️⃣ 18 writing jobs!

    Remember, our supporters get exclusive bonuses (and love, and karma, and better skin, and... more 😉)




    1️⃣ Resource of the week 

    Write faster with Moonbeam’s writing assistant

    You all know I'm a sucker for some good tech (esp when it's *free*). And I've seen a bunch of different writing helpers and tricks. 

    I think Moonbeam is one of the most useful writing tools out there.. it helps you become more efficient

    They help 1000's of writers create blogs, essays, and even grant proposals 10x faster by using Moonbeam’s AI assistant.

    The trick: they help write “boring“ parts so you can focus on more of the 'important' stuff  (research, soul, humor).

    Moonbeam is the probably best AI assistant I've tried (it's free to try right now 👀)
