Review for The Office of Letters and Light, Berkeley, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My experience with OLL is all through their National Novel Writing Month program, Nanowrimo.org. If it weren't for Nanowrimo I would hardly be writing now! Nano gave me a kickstart into imagination and brilliance again, and led me to another amazing website for young writers. Because of a Nano, I am going far over and up from everything I imagined. I am in love with writing!

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Review for The Office of Letters and Light, Berkeley, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

National Novel Writing Month (Nanowrimo), which is the child program of the Office of Letters and Light, helped me write a novel. This is the only way I ever would have done so. The forums were friendly and well-moderated; the staff was amazing. I have no complaints about the system. If it wasn't for the Office of Letters and Light, I would not have begun a novel, I would not have met many interesting people, and I would have missed out on a great opportunity.
