My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for The Office of Letters and Light, Berkeley, CA, USA
I've served as a board member for more than a year, and I'm continually amazed by the creativity, professionalism and dedication of this organization. Board decisions are discussed thoroughly and made with diligence and care. And yet, the organization has managed to maintain its irreverent spirit (example: board decisions are made while wearing viking helmets). Events like the Night of Writing Dangerously put a twist on the normally solitary pursuit of writing, helping people get excited about their own work and the organization itself. OLL serves as a huge source of inspiration -- and fun -- for thousands of writers and students, and it's a thrill to be a part of that.
