About Cole Writes Words

Cole Writes Words is a writing project by myself, Cole. Games criticism and film criticism will be the bulk of my work done here, as those have been my beats for years. From long-form, dense criticism to short, breezy essays, my goal for this Patreon is to have media criticism that is as compelling as it is varied. The work will live on the Cole Writes Words Medium page, Patreon-exclusive content will live, well, here on Patreon, and any future video work (oh the possibilities!) will live on the Cole Writes Words YouTube channel (stay tuned). 

My goal is to write 4 essays (varying in length) and 1 Patreon exclusive essay a month. Further content will come if there is a desire for more. 

The mode of criticism that I work in is deeply influenced by leftist writing and Karl Marx so, you know, if that is not your speed, then maybe this Patreon is not for you. Also, I know that a lot of my work towards games is very acidic (games sure are bad a lot) but I promise to write lots of essays about games I love, why games mean so much to me, and you can bet your bottom dollar I will be doing some game reviews through this Patreon. That is all, take care!
Goals
$15.33 of $50 per month
If I reach $50 dollars a month, I will embark on creating video essays/video content for as long as this goal is met. 1 Video a month, but that is subject to change over time.
