About the Journal
Transformative Works and Cultures (TWC) is an international, peer-reviewed journal published by the Organization for Transformative Works. TWC publishes articles about transformative works, broadly conceived and articles about the fan community.
We invite papers in all areas, including fan fiction, fan vids, film, TV, anime, fan art, comic books, cosplay, fan community, music, video games, celebrities and machinima. We encourage a variety of critical approaches, including feminism, gender studies, queer theory, postcolonial theory, audience theory, reader-response theory, literary criticism, film studies, and posthumanism. We also encourage authors to consider writing personal essays integrated with scholarship; hyperlinked articles; or other forms that test the limits of the genre of academic writing.
Submissions: Authors need to register as authors with the journal before submitting, or if already registered as authors can simply log in and begin the five-step process of submission. TWC does not levy author fees.
