Sponsor Guidelines

We’re primarily interested in working with brands that help our readers learn — learn better, learn more, learn faster. Whatever allows them to exercise their natural curiosity and open-mindedness should be a good fit.

Since our primary focus lies on non-fiction book summaries, we love partnering with companies that provide learning experiences based around books, but as long as your product or service helps people learn, you should reach out.

We also have segmented our audience by topical interests (e.g. over 13,000 subscribers interested in personal finance), so in some cases, exceptions may apply. When in doubt, just reach out!

Getting Started

Our newsletter is part of the ConvertKit Sponsor Network. Therefore, all inquiries will be handled by their team. If you’re interested in working together, please fill out the form via the button below, and they’ll be in touch.
