October Membership Drive: Thank you for your support! | Organization for Transformative Works
he OTW's October membership drive has officially ended, and we'd like to thank everyone who came out to support it! Thanks to your enthusiasm and generosity, we had a very successful week! Between October 1-7, we received 1,810 individual donations totaling US$44,594.05, making this one of our most successful drives ever. Donations are still coming in: as of this writing, we've raised more than US$48,000 since October 1, and the OTW's membership has increased to more than 4,200 people.

To the 966 donors who took the plunge and became members of the OTW for the very first time during this drive, we welcome you with open arms and thank you from the bottom of our hearts! And to our returning members, thank you for your ongoing support, which has made the OTW's work possible for six years and counting.

October Membership Drive: Support for open-access fan scholarship | Organization for Transformative Works
Three full journal issues a year, with five to ten peer reviewed essays each, would be no small feat even in an academically supported environment, where a university press is supporting the process and there is a built-in community of available peer-reviewers. What the team for TWC manages, is to overcome the lack of established academic infrastructure and consistently provide a respected journal of superlative quality. That is huge.

An academic journal that is free to any and all readers is a rare thing. To give some idea of how valuable a resource TWC is, a similar academic journal on fan studies charges individual subscribers $105 USD a year, a typical price for a 12-month subscription to a peer-reviewed journal in the field. Libraries also benefit by having TWC as a part of their holdings (but not an additional cost in their journal budget).

October Membership Drive: OTW Expenses, Large and Small | Organization for Transformative Works
Since it was founded six years ago, the OTW has developed several major projects which have affected the fandom experience of thousands of people. The AO3 alone has over 200,000 registered users, and around 300,000 unique visitors a day. Some of those users are also utilizing archives preserved by Open Doors, and many more visit Fanlore or read and reference content from TWC's fourteen issues. Both the OTW and individual fans also depend on advice provided by OTW's Legal Advocacy project.

As our projects continue to grow in terms of questions answered, pageviews served, and new features developed, our costs continue to grow as well. Earlier this year we gave a detailed breakdown of the AO3's expenses. In this post, we'd like to share some details about the expenses of running other projects and the OTW as a whole.

October Membership Drive: How the OTW changed my life | Organization for Transformative Works
As we celebrate the fifth anniversary of the OTW, I'd like to share some thoughts about how OTW has changed my fannish life.

I entered the secret world of vidding about 18 years ago when my roommate received a large box of VHS tapes containing all of the episodes of Wise Guy and a couple of extra tapes with these weird little music videos on them. A few months later, she and our neighbor Wendy were making vids — and a few years later, so was I.
