How do I subscribe to or unsubscribe from a section on Substack?

If you're a new subscriber to a publication on Substack, you'll receive all sections by default.

If you're already a subscriber and the writer has created a new section or sections, you'll need to subscribe to them in order to receive a new email newsletter or see a post in your app Inbox.

To subscribe to a section:

1. Navigate to your Settings page via www.substack.com/settings. Or when logged into your Substack account, select "Settings" from the drop-down menu.

To unsubscribe from a section:

1. Navigate to your Settings page via www.substack.com/settings and click on the publication you want to make changes to (as seen in steps above).

2. Uncheck the box next to each section you'd like to stop receiving email or app Inbox newsletters from.

Alternatively, when you get an email newsletter, select "Unsubscribe" in the footer of the email and click on "Turn off emails" next to each section you'd like to unsubscribe from.
