come to our party
This lovely backyard in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, is perfect for a NonDoc party. (Daniel Miley)

On Saturday, July 8, NonDoc supporters, contributors and editors will gather for a summer house party in Oklahoma City.

While the night is aimed at announcing business initiatives, adding Writers’ Fund donors and building momentum, it will be a casual event full of food and fun. One of our readers (and a monthly contributor to our Writers’ Fund, at that) has been kind enough to offer up his epic backyard as a venue for the event: a wooded enclave (pictured above) right smack in OKC.

If you’re interested in attending, please email with your name and any guests you’d like to bring. We will reply with the exact location and other details.

Recent stories made possible by Writers’ Fund donors

While we do use some Writers’ Fund donations to help support general NonDoc operations and growth efforts, your support also allows us to pay trained freelance journalists for their independent reporting on important civic and cultural issues.

Here are a few recent stories made possible by the Writers’ Fund:
