We discuss how the structure of massless monopoles in supersymmetric theories with a Coulomb phase can be obtained from effective superpotentials for a phase with a confined photon. To illustrate the technique, we derive effective superpotentials which can be used to derive the curves which describe the Coulomb phase of N = 2, SU(Nc) gauge theory with Nf < Nc flavors.
