  • The OTW: By Fans, For Fans, Open to All

    Published: Wed 09 Oct 2019 07:52PM EDT Comments: 141

    We believe that creation thrives in community, and that fandom especially requires spaces to exist free from censorship, open to all, and without threat of disappearing. In a world where fan labor is so often exploited, censorship is mandated, and information remains in flux, the Organization for Transformative Works (OTW) aims to create spaces where all are welcome to create, analyze, and preserve. And to do that, we rely on your donations.
