Review for The Office Of Letters And Light, Berkeley, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

NaNoWriMo and the Young Writers Program of NaNoWriMo made a huge difference in my teaching junior high students. We all became authors. They became leaders to their peers, younger students in our system, and even to parents, who were surprised and delighted their children wrote novels. The staff is warm, friendly, helpful, personable, and make one feel a part of the organization. The Office of Letters and Light is one of my favorite nonprofits.

The Office of Letters and Light is a great nonprofit. My experience and the experiences of my students was second to none. NaNoWriMo and the Young Writers Program of NaNoWriMo offer resources, helplines, and encouragement for growing in literacy. The new director of YWP, Tim Kim, is awesome. He and Chris Angotti are so helpful and led my 8th graders to engage in literacy for the whole month, loving every minute of it. The Office of Letters and Light is still influencing us, as this month we are editing our novels. Next we will get a free copy because of a donation from CreateSpace.

The Office of Letters and Light has exceeded my wildest expectations. The fine folks who run the office are intelligent, passionate, patient, personable, creative, and giving. I have loved being a part of a world-wide writing community for the past two years. I never in my wildest dreams would have written a novel had it not been for NaNoWriMo and the encouragement I've received from the staff at OLL--Chris, Tavia, Lindsey, Nancy, Intern Nora and so many more. They have made me feel a part of the writing community. I have 33 students, and counting, who have become novelists because of the OLL.
