When my correspondents reproach me for tardiness, I can only say that I give as much attention to a letter as I do to anything I write, and I work at least six and sometimes sixteen hours a day.” ~ William S. Burroughs
Need to get in touch with me with a question? Flag a typo? (I’m human.) Send a kind word? You can email me. (If it’s about a monthly donation, please see the section below first.) There is only one of me — no “team,” no staff, no magic elves helping me — and I receive so much email that even if I made it my full-time job, neglecting Brain Pickings completely, I’d only be able to get through a fraction. So please be patient. A clear subject line will help. Thank you.
IMPORTANT: Please do not send PR pitches, press releases, and other promotional materials to this email address — they will not only be discarded but will also cause divine fury in my spirit animal, which is not the response you’re going for anyway.
I am not currently available for any interviews, talks, or readings.
You can find everything you need to know about Figuring here and in the book itself.
Do you need help stopping a monthly donation? If you donate via PayPal, please see this page; if via credit or debit card, please go here. If you would like to change the donation amount, I’m afraid I don’t know of a way to do that — you can cancel your current donation and set up a new one in your desired amount.
