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

Rating: 5 stars  

This organization's encouragement of writing - including thinking about, planning and discussing writing - has helped me concentrate on my writing goals. I have also seen the results of its Young Writers program in schools, helping children realize the fun and satisfaction of writing even when it requires work. I have passed on news of its NANOWRIMO annual event to many of my friends and even to people I have just met who show any interest in writing.

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

Rating: 5 stars  

The Office of Letters and Light not only encourages people of all ages to write but also to improve their writing and make use of their creativity. I have personally been able to watch the growth of the organization's work from my first sign-up several years ago to my daughter's participation this year. She not only worked on her own writing, but also, as a student teacher, led third and fourth graders on their adventures into writing. An organization that can excite three generations is definitely one to keep around!

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

Rating: 5 stars  

Thanks to the encouragement and enthusiasm of the Office of Letters and Light and its NaNoWriMo event, I finally wrote the first draft of a novel, my novel - the one I've been talking about for far too many years. I learned some discipline in having to meet a deadline, talked with fellow writers about our progress and frustrations, was inspired by working together in chat-room events, and realized I can write and want to write. The Office of Letters and Light provides a great service to all writers, and wannabe writers by promoting writing as a very worthwhile activity - published or not.
