Study Hall publishes a weekly email Digest with media news, jobs, and freelance opportunities, plus a community Listserv for media workers. Our Network is a real-time platform of editor databases, private chat rooms, and business resources.
We launched in 2015 with a mission to build community in the media industry. We also commission original stories.

Why Members Like It:
"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 email@example.com.
