The Office of Letters and Light
March 9, 2012

I served as a Municipal Liaison for OLL, specifically for OLL's annual Nanowrimo campaign. I was able to interact with both administrators and people in my region (Kansas-Other), solve problems, make suggestions, and write a novel in six days. Without OLL's stewardship, I would never have been able to experience personal satisfaction and growth in my own adminstrative ability.

The Office of Letters and Light
March 1, 2011

The Office of Letters and Light, parent organization of the National November Writing Month and other literacy-oriented activities, has evolved from a simple sponsor of a yearly writing activity to one of the major forces in promoting literacy across the world. Not only does OLL sponsor Nanowrimo as a platform for thousands of writers; it also offers a similar program for student writers in schools across the country. This year, OLL added collection of surplus books to be given to an agency which distributes them at low cost to readers. In the three years since joining Nanowrimo, I have personally been inspired to finish one young adult novel and write six more. I view OLL as one of the most important sponsors for literacy among both adults and children and am proud to support them with my own donations.
