“I came across the TWC special issue on fan activism and ended up teaching one of the essays in my freshman writing class. While writing this essay I used resources from TWC in my research, so it seemed like the natural place to send the finished essay. Not only did the journal seem like a good fit, but I also really like that the journal is open access so that anyone can read it and that the journal uses web links and images in the articles to help connect them to the fandoms they discuss.

TWC is one of the few, or perhaps the only journal that has such a supportive relationship with fandoms.“
