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

Rating: 5 stars  

In addition to my role as volunteer, I am also a donor and client served. I've been involved with the organization's NaNoWriMo event since 2003. I've donated each year since then, and I have been volunteering since 2007. My favorite thing about this organization is its commitment--to its volunteers and to the population that it serves. The staff are tireless in their efforts to help their volunteers and the tens of thousands of aspiring writers achieve their script- or novel-writing goals. The fact that their goal is to bring literature into the world and inspire those who wouldn't normally write to write is another favorite aspect of OLL. OLL truly is dedicated, and dedicated to a very worthwhile endeavor that provides inspiration from around the globe. On a personal level, I've met some of my best friends through the NaNoWriMo event and learned perseverance, as well.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

meeting very worthwhile people, many of whom have become close personal friends, achieving my goals, and being inspired to persevere.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I can't think of anything.

Role:  Volunteer & Served as a Municipal Liaison, providing a regional resource and support for novel writers during the NaNoWriMo event.
