Cartoonists Note


First they came for the poets.

Then they came for the short story writers.

Then they came for the cartoonists.

Tomorrow theyll come for you.

Medium CEO Ev Williams

Mediums unexpected and unwelcome change in the way it compensates members of its Partner Program payment is now based on how long it takes people to read an article rather than how much they like it (if at all) rewards creators of long, padded articles, and essentially demonetizes shorter content.

As nearly all of my posts are poetry, cartoons, or efficient fiction/essays, Im faring very poorly under this new system.

Since the change was implemented, my Partner Program earnings have plummeted by 90%, and hundreds (if not thousands) of others are in the boat.

If you want to help, send a tweet or email to Medium CEO Ev Williams ( and/or to expressing your displeasure with the unfair new system, and asking them to restore all the missing earnings which have essentially been stolen from its writers. I and others would be so grateful!

Slowly re-reading this post 100 times would also help enormously ;)

So would buying me a coffee.
