"I see TLF as an incubator for ideas first, as well as a publishing entity. So just creating a space where fans, fan scholars or whoever is interested in writing about fan culture and pop culture in a critical way, can have a space to do that without having to worry about clicks for survival. Like we’re happy if a piece we publish eventually becomes something bigger for another publication or a book or whatever. That would be awesome as long as the writer remembers us!

We’re partnering with a couple of libraries in the Chicago area to do some workshops about “critical thinking and writing about pop culture.” We’d love to do more of that with other organizations, to do that kind of outreach, because that’s important to us as well."
