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)

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:

And here’s the full blog if you want to see more.

Hope to see you next Tuesday.


Richard Dawkins and Stew Fortier
I’ve had the chance to help all sorts of writers, including one of my personal heroes Richard Dawkins (story here)
