Why subscribe to Cultural Conversation by A. J. Black?

If you’ve made it this far, chances are you’ve read some of my work online somewhere, been directed here via my website ajblackwriter.com, and you want to see what this is about.

Put simply, Substack feels like a clearer and easier way for me to connect with *you*. By subscribing via email, you get my writing direct to your e-door without having to go looking anywhere for it. Sure, I will still post links out on social media, but it’s very difficult through those mediums to reach you and, importantly, connect.

I want to build something interactive here around all of the popular culture I discuss and if you subscribe, you’ll get access for free to my reviews, essays, musings and plans, hopefully in a different, more direct, and more dialogue-based way than before - if you’re up for that! If you just want to lurk and read, that’s cool too.

How does it work?

All you need to do is enter your email and join the subscription list. This is free and quick, and you then get my writing whenever anything posts straight into your inbox.

Then, down the line, if you’re in a position to support my writing financially for a tiny amount per month, you will get access to pieces I am going to put together just for you. But that’s for later…

Hope to see you on the flipside!
