Organization for Transformative Works Membership Drive, April 9–11, 2021

April 2021 Drive: Kudos to You

The Organization for Transformative Works was founded by fans for fans in 2007, with the mission of serving fandom by preserving and encouraging the creation of transformative works. Fourteen years later, our commitment remains unwavering. Whether through legal advocacy against fan-unfriendly legislation worldwide, rescuing endangered fanworks, recording fan history, providing a venue for fan studies scholarship, or hosting your fanworks old and new, the OTW is working to protect fans and the transformative works they create.

But we can’t do it without your help. As we do in April and October every year, over the next three days we are asking you to consider joining the OTW and donating to support our work. If you aren’t able to donate at this time, please consider sharing news of our drive with others in your fandom networks, and please know that however you show your commitment to the OTW, your participation and enthusiasm are very much appreciated.

International Fanworks Day

Thanks for Participating in International Fanworks Day 2021

That’s right: International Fanworks Day is over for another year, and we at the Organization for Transformative Works want to thank everybody who participated in our scheduled events.

This year we chose to focus on lesser-known fandoms, characters, pairings and fanworks. We’re grateful for everybody who created new works on this theme and posted them on social media under the #IFDChallenge2021 hashtag, or on Archive of Our Own using our International Fanworks Day 2021 tag. Make sure to go and check out everyone’s creations: you might find a new fandom, encounter a new pairing or be introduced to a character you’ve never considered before. Read More
