Do we need to be a paying Patreon member to publish ANY stories on TWK that are behind the paywall?

I have some stories I did awhile back behind the paywall, but they were random prompts from the generator. I’d like to write again for TWK but I really need to place my work behind the paywall, and I cannot afford to join Patreon. I have read the submissions several times and I still find myself confused.

I figure if I have the question — others probably do as well. But feel free to respond privately if you’d rather.

Thanks TWK! (PS I run a poetry group and I’d like to promote your generator/prompts there, but I need to understand fully how all this works.)
