Instead of spending endless hours scrolling through Twitter to keep up on the latest in the media world, sign up for Study Hall!

Our $2/month weekly newsletter, the Digest, is a vital recap of digital media news, with original reporting and commentary (gossip) on magazines, social media, podcasts, and more.

We also offer a job opportunity newsletter, editor databases, online community, and tools ($4-$18/month) for people who work in the media industry, especially freelance writers.

FOR EVERYONE:

$2
/mo: Study Hall Digest: This is our weekly collection of media gossip, news, and commentary: great for anyone interested in the media, whether you work in it or not. You'll also get access to all Study Hall original stories: interviews, breaking news, essays, and deep dives into media organizations. 

FOR MEDIA WORKERS AND FREELANCERS:


$11/mo: Study Hall Network: Deep collaboration for freelancers: This level includes the Study Hall Listserv and Digest (described below), plus access to our Network, which is run on Basecamp. There you'll find an ever-growing list of editor contacts, a list of publications that don't pay on time, message boards, pitch guides, book proposals, and real-time chat rooms, including private chats for LGBTQ freelancers, women, media workers of color, and more.

$4/mo: Digest and Listserv: This level includes the Study Hall Digest, plus a weekly email of job and freelance opportunities, editor Q&As, plus access to a listserv of 500+ media workers, where we share stories, advice, pitch ideas, cautionary tales, and more.

////

The $12 and $18 "database" levels are for investigative journalists only who are looking for a service that helps them find phone numbers, addresses, and more. Email [email protected] if you're interested in these services. You'll need pre-approval to join. We recommend the vast majority of people sign up for one of the levels above.

Your pledge goes to helping Study Hall compile the Digest newsletter and manage the Listserv and Basecamp. It helps support everything else we do, like publishing original stories, hosting workshops for freelance tax strategy, and events about journalism in Trump's America. Our funding goes directly to our staff, including staff writer Allegra Hobbs and community administrator Erin Corbett.

Please allow a week from subscribing for processing. By subscribing, you agree that all Study Hall Digest and Listserv communication is considered private and off the record unless otherwise specified. Charges will be made by Patreon upon pledging and then at the beginning of every month.

Editors with opportunities and others with tips, please email [email protected] to have your info posted to the listserv.
