The Sunday Digest: Write with Every
Everything we published this week + a time-sensitive invitation
Did you happen to catch our big announcement this week? We’re looking for four new writers to take on as part of our Fall ’21 batch. Who’ve we already got? None other than The New Yorker’s Adam Davidson, whose upcoming Every newsletter we told you about last week.
There’s just under a month left to apply, and we truly hope you’ll consider doing so. The Every community is a diverse crew from different backgrounds, disciplines and areas of interest, and we want to keep pushing it in that direction. So come join us!
What We Published
4 articles and 1 podcast
by Rachel Jepsen in The Long Conversation (7-minute read)
What’s with the fear of hitting “submit”—and what can we learn about it from a concept like Product to Market fit? Leave it to Rachel to excavate the overlap between the two, all in an effort to explain how reorienting our writerly goals can make the process safer, smoother, and more rewarding.
by Fadeke Adegbuyi in Cybernaut (7-minute read)
Ever wonder who’s behind the celebrity fan accounts dotting Twitter and Instagram? Fadeke actually spoke to the creator behind one of them for this piece, which charts the peaks and valleys of a deceptively difficult gig. From viral growth to getting blocked by the object of your affection, it’s an intense and singular experience—and as usual, Fadeke is the ideal person to chronicle it.

🎧 Talk Therapy with Dan Shipper & Nathan Baschez (47-minute listen)
With a new season of Every favorite Ted Lasso hitting the streamerverse, Dan and Nathan finally took their love of the Apple show to the airwaves, where they were met by fellow hawk-eyed viewer Rachel Jepsen for the first installment of a new weekly recap show! Topics include: a shaky opening, when therapy goes from subtext to text, and wanting to keep fictional dogs alive.
