Thank you for supporting Sweetbitter.

Sweetbitter is a writing newsletter meant to inspire. Subscribe to stay involved in the writing community as I discuss my writing, the publishing industry, and more (including the occasional cat picture).

Every new edition of the newsletter goes directly to your inbox. There, you’ll be able to see behind-the-scenes looks at my writing and join me on my journey to becoming a published author.

Your support means the world to me. One of the greatest strengths of the writing community is just that—the community. And I cherish every interaction, every way we uplift each other, with all my heart. I hope that you, too, have the chance to share your journey.

With all love,
Thank you.
