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

Rating: 5 stars  

I always enjoyed writing, but didn't do much beyond short stories. I heard about the Office of Letters and Light and their NaNoWriMo program through a volunteer that I happened to talk to in the book store I worked in. Every year I participate in the great adventure and while I do not always succeed in their challenge I'm glad I try. Their pep talks from published authors don't just encourage you to write, but also help you believe you can succeed in writing. I now try to donate to them every year for providing such a great program to everyone. Without them I would not have written the four novels I now have for editing, nor would I believe I could one day publish them. The Office of Letters and Light is not just a great nonprofit organization, but has fostered a wonderful community on the internet for writers of all ages.

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

Rating: 5 stars  

I first went to their website for NaNoWriMo for a fun writing challenge, but it has turned into a spectacular event that I look forward to every year. The forums are helpful and I have made at least one friend at the event. During their NaNoWriMo event I have been able to complete two 50,000 word novels on two separate occasions, but only due to the encouragement and help they provided. My first novel has turned into a trilogy and I hope for it soon to be published. They are an excellent site and resource for writers of any age. I cannot thank them enough for helping me do something I thought I could never do.

Role:  General Member of the Public & I have particpated one of the events they hosted several years now.
