Howdy, I’m Stew.
I help online writers produce their best work.
I primarily do this at Compound Writing, which I co-founded to help the internet’s best writers produce work that would have been impossible on their own.
When I’m not working with other writers, I hone my own writing craft.
I write about important ideas that are hiding in plain sight. (example: hunter-gatherers value storytelling skills more than hunting and gathering skills)
I send my best work to my private email list, Stew’s Letter, which you can read in 2 minutes and get the hell on with your week.
Here’s what a few readers have said about Stew’s Letter:
“…one of the best blogs on the internet… an incredible writer. That is all – have a great weekend.”
“I get tremendous joy and food for thought from Stew Fortier’s weekly letter.”
“It’s the only newsletter that I open immediately.”
Occasionally, I write longer pieces that I post on this site.
Here are a few of my most popular posts:
- Why you should share your ideas online
- Hunter-gatherers value storytelling skills over hunting skills
- Nobel laureates are 22 times more likely to have hobbies than their peers
- Genius can’t be taught
And here’s the full blog if you want to see more.
Hope to see you next Tuesday.
P.S. if you’re working on a blog post or essay, DM me on Twitter. I’m always happy to help edit it or be a thought partner.
