About volunteering for the OTW

The Organization for Transformative Works (OTW) is a web-based nonprofit that runs on the talent, energy, and dedication of a network of volunteers from all over the world. Together, we manage a diverse range of projects to support the development of transformative works, from our legal advocacy to our academic journal, from the preservation of fan history to preserving fanworks themselves, and of course, the many gears that keep the Archive of Our Own available to fans.

If you're interested in joining us, you're in the right place! Please see below for all open positions within our committees, each with an individual description and application. We encourage you to browse through the listings and apply for any roles which match your qualifications and interests.

If there are no positions listed below, then we thank you for your interest, but are not looking for volunteers at this time. If you'd like to support OTW's work with your time, please consider sharing your fandom knowledge on Fanlore, one of the organization's fandom preservation projects.

The Organization for Transformative Works’ Code of Conduct applies to all OTW volunteers. If you have further questions, please see our Volunteering FAQ, or contact the Volunteers & Recruiting Committee here.
