I signed up last month with Medium, which an online publishing platform that looks like a hybrid of Twitter and WordPress, but with fewer customization options. My intention is to publish stories that were buried elsewhere with the occasional personal essay that would feel inappropriate here. You can read all of my stories and many others for free without registering. To follow writers, applaud stories, or unlock members-only stories, you can sign up for a monthly membership.
Stories on Medium can be published by themselves or within a group’s publication. So far, three of my stories are grouped with publications–with P.S.: I Love You and Lit Up. Submitting to them worked out well. I’ve already been listed as one of the top writers within the LGBTQ tag.
