Mission Statement

The Organization for Transformative Works (OTW) is a nonprofit organization established by fans to serve the interests of fans by providing access to and preserving the history of fanworks and fan culture in its myriad forms. We believe that fanworks are transformative and that transformative works are legitimate.

The OTW represents a practice of transformative fanwork historically rooted in a primarily female culture. The OTW will preserve the record of that history as we pursue our mission while encouraging new and non-mainstream expressions of cultural identity within fandom.

Description

The OTW is an all-volunteer organization that works primarily in a virtual environment in fulfillment of our mission.


The OTW engages in legal advocacy to represent fans' interests in legal and government discussions about copyright's effects. We also produce four ongoing projects for public use. Please see our Showcase pages for more information.
