Hey, y’all!

I’m Austin Kleon, the author of Steal Like an Artist and other bestselling books about creativity.

Every Friday since 2013 I’ve sent out a list of 10 things I think are worth sharing. The emails feature an eclectic mix of both my own art and writing + books, music, movies, and other interesting links that have inspired me.

Over 190,000 readers subscribe, including famous writers, artists, entrepreneurs, and other creative types from around the world. Join us!

Why become a paid subscriber?

The Friday email will always be free for everyone, but for $5/month or $50/year paid subscribers get:

  • Bonus Tuesday emails
    Every Tuesday morning, I’ll send you an illustrated essay, a tool I can’t live without, a technique I use, a favorite book from my collection, or another exclusive behind-the-scenes peek at my process.

  • Membership in a creative community of thousands
    Commenting, chat, and discussion threads are reserved exclusively for paid subscribers. As many have noted, our comment section is one of the nicest corners of the internet — we learn a ton from each other, and there are thousands of us.

  • Full archives
    Becoming a paid subscriber, even just for one month, gives you access to hundreds of hours of reading in the back issues.

  • Special offers and other goodies
    You’ll be the first to know about events, new books, and everything else.
