Every month or so the OTW will be doing a Q&A with one of its volunteers about their experiences in the organization. The posts express each volunteer's personal views and do not necessarily reflect the views of the OTW or constitute OTW policy. Today's post is with Nikki Bird, who volunteers as a staffer in our Finance Committee.
What do fanworks mean to us? Apparently quite a lot of things! #WhatFanworksMeantoMe was the most successful of the OTW's events for the 2018 celebration of International Fanworks Day on February 15th. Browse the hashtag on Twitter to experience all the different personal stories!
