Study Hall launched in 2015 with a mission to build solidarity and community between media workers.
We run a weekly email Digest with media news, jobs, and freelance opportunities, plus a community Listserv. Our Network is a real-time platform of editor databases, private chat rooms, and resources for freelance writers.
We also maintain a shared office space in Gowanus, Brooklyn, which is open to new members.
Study Hall Network ($11/moNTH)
Deep collaboration for freelancers. This level includes the Digest, Listserv, and our Network: a database of 140+ editor contacts, publications that don't pay on time, real-time chat rooms, private groups for women, LGBTQ, media workers of color, and more (details here).
STudy hall listserv ($4/moNTH)
The Study Hall Digest, plus a weekly email of media job openings and freelance opportunities (sample here), plus access to a collaborative Listserv of 300+ media workers, where we share new story ideas, writing advice, pitches, and sources.
Digest only ($2/moNTH)
Our weekly email with media gossip and industry news. It's great for anyone interested in the media, or anyone who spends too much time on Twitter (sample here).(No access to Listserv or Basecamp.)

"Through Study Hall, I've gotten suggestions for where to pitch, editor contacts, guidance in negotiating contracts, and, maybe most importantly, a community of friendly and supportive writers who are there for each other for crises and tiny questions, with every kind of help."
— Jaime Green, writer and editor
"As a writer, I’ve met editors who I am now writing for; as an editor, I’ve met writers who are now writing fantastic things for me. Who knew the circle of journalistic life could be so great?"
— Tori Telfer, author of Lady Killers
"Study Hall is helpful for editors because it allows us to catch writers at all points in the process, not just at the end of a pitch."
— Michelle Legro, editor at Longreads
Our Shared Office in Brooklyn
We also run a 24/7 shared office space for writers and other media freelancers in the Gowanus neighborhood of Brooklyn, closest to the F, G, and R trains (and a block from the giant Whole Foods).
Shared desk space and private desks are available. A part-time membership is $150 a month for 3 days a week and full-time is $250. Weekend access only is $100 a month.
Study Hall promotes community and collaboration in the media industry.
We were founded in Brooklyn in 2015 by Kyle Chayka and Peter Moskowitz. Reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our creative branch is Study Hall Studio, which works with media companies in content production and editorial consulting.
