I think the most important lessons we learn about ourselves are gained in our service to others. We are alive during a time of profoundly conflicted messaging and general static in the public square. It takes a toll on most of us.

If there’s something I can do to help you, I want to help you. If you’ve got a need for volunteers and I can make it, I’ll be there.

I also make a regular offer to writers — if you volunteer at least four hours in your community, I’ll edit the first 25 pages of your manuscript. That particular program operates on a first come, first served basis (except when it doesn’t) and I usually allow myself a month or so to get caught up on the pile.

Tentative Upcoming Schedule –

  • November volunteer/December edit will open on December 1st.
  • January volunteer/February edit will open on February 1st, 2018
  • March volunteer/April Edit will open on April 1st, 2018

If you have questions about the program, deadlines, what constitutes volunteer work, etc., please feel free to send an email to ben@benjaminleroy.com
