I am so glad you are here and have decided to read along every week. This newsletter is my favorite place to be on the internet, welcome! Monday Monday is one of the top Art and Illustration newsletters on Substack with over 27k readers

I write here every week about creative practice, quilting, writing, paying attention, time, living in Michigan, being queer, and more

It is both the place that I come to write about art and is an art project itself

I’m Marlee Grace, a writer and artist who has been writing a digital newsletter since 2013, weekly since 2017. I made a digital class called NEWSLETTER CLASS and you can take it anytime and make your own.


I wrote the book How To Not Always Be Working which has sold over 41k physical copies and 5k of e-books and audio books which came out in 2018 and Getting To Center : Pathways to Finding Yourself Within the Great Unknown in 2020

You can find more of my favorite books here

Paying subscribers receive my monthly advice column YES YES that includes answers to your questions about life and opportunities to interact with other readers, bonus things, and more. As soon as you become a paid subscriber you’ll have access to all paid content where you can find the google form to submit your questions.

The every Monday newsletter is free, although when you pay for it it’s a very nice thing. Writing this newsletter and hosting it as a community space for connection to my paid subscribers is a role I take seriously and put a lot of care into. Your participation financially means so much to me.

Each month an organization or mutual aid fund will receive a portion of total revenue - the Paying Attention To section of the newsletter will continue where I share links for you to discover and redistribute to yourself, podcasts to listen to, artist dates to treat yourself to, books to read, and more

Design of Monday Monday and Yes Yes graphics and lists were made in collaboration with Lukaza Branfman-Verissimo
