Every fortnight or so, I send a newsletter about my favourite sentences, or sentence-related things. It’s an excuse to talk about what I’m reading and thinking—since everything is sentence-related. Oh, and grammatical, not judicial.
I’m not sure you should, to be honest. If there’s anything I’ve figured out, the world is too full and life is too brief to spend time pressuring people into subscribing to email newsletters based on ephemeral gimmicks or some fear of intellectually missing out.
But, but! If you enjoy reading about writing, thinking about what makes some sentences click inside your brain like a gear change, or want reading suggestions from a wide variety of fields, then you might enjoy Topic Sentence.
What readers think
99% of the emails I receive contribute to a general feeling of overwhelm. Topic Sentence is that rare treasure: an email that leaves me feeling nourished, spacious, and more curious about things without the slightest tinge of information overload. Artfully crafted, concise, and heartfelt, it’s a joy to read every single time.

Can I forward the emails?
Definitely. But writing a letter to someone about this new email newsletter you found is even better.
