My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for The Office of Letters and Light, Berkeley, CA, USA
In 2009, I first participated in NaNoWriMo. I had no idea what to expect. I am a donor and also a "client served" as I am a participant in NaNoWriMo events. I also volunteered in 2010 as a municipal liaison to help others in my area.
The bottom line is this: I benefited in very personal ways from my participation with NaNoWriMo and the Office of Letters and Light. From there, I became a donor and then a volunteer. The Office of Letters and Light offers inspiration, guidance, and help to those who are looking to fulfill their dreams. They do this through practical advice, mutually beneficial relationships with vendors and all with humor!
This organization answers questions, responds to community requests and each year makes improvements based on actual feedback from participants. It's amazing how efficient these improvements and changes have been over the past few years. The organization is one that puts its money right where it says it will and provides an inspiring array of services to people of all ages, including students in areas of need.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
my writing life. I had something published this year all due to the confidence and skills developed through participation with NaNoWriMo.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
hasten the pace at which they make NaNoWriMo available year-round. The organization is already taking care of this project, it is just not complete yet.
