Break out the party hats, the Organization for Transformative Works is 14 today! We are delighted to celebrate another anniversary with you all.
The OTW’s mission since we launched has been to protect fan history and culture in all its forms. All of our projects work towards this goal. Over the past 14 years, OTW volunteers have rescued hundreds of fanworks from threatened platforms and archives; acted as a voice for fans regarding copyright legislation around the world; published 35 journal issues’ worth of peer-reviewed fan studies scholarship; built and supported a fan culture wiki that our users have edited over 1 million times; and developed an archive that now contains over 8 million fanworks.
