The Ugly Monster

2 min readSep 8, 2022

The Ugly Monster is accepting submissions related to just about any media on Earth. Film, television, video games, tabletop games, novels, comic books, the news, music, poetry, whatever. Reviews, analyses, game mods/hacks, guides, and even politicizations are all good. Genres range from sci-fi and horror to historical fiction and non-fiction. Everything from big franchises, like Marvel, to niche interests, like robot combat, are in our wheelhouse.

All submissions must be your original work. Further, we prefer articles that aren’t syndicated from another platform. Submissions must meet Medium’s curation guidelines. You must proofread your article before submitting. Keep links leading outside of the publication to a bare minimum. Text, titles, and topics may be edited for readability and effect.

Like the Necromongers in ‘The Chronicles of Riddick’, “you keep what you kill”. You may meter your articles through Medium’s Partner Program. You may also embed Audience Development links into your article. Links/buttons for Membership Referrals, Email Subscriptions, and Tipping are all good.

You retain all rights to your work on The Ugly Monster. That said, please do not remove articles once they’ve been accepted, edited, and published.

If you’re interested in joining this pirate ship, leave a Response or Private Note on this article.

Once you’ve been added to the publication, you can submit drafts. We also accept previously posted articles, so long as they’re evergreen or relatively recent.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask.
