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

Rating: 5 stars  

Since I discovered NaNoWriMo in 2007, I've won and I've lost, but losing has never lessened the experience for me. I've met amazing people, experienced the event with people of all ages, and formed lasting friendships that I couldn't do without now. Writing and NaNo have been a staple in my yearly calendar, and I like to think that it has enhanced my writing ability through unhindered practice. I have been a participant, a donor, and a volunteer, and I recommend this event to anyone with the creative lunacy to birth a novel in thirty days.

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

Rating: 5 stars  

I've participated in NaNoWriMo every year since 2008, and it's been a rewarding experience to say the very least. I worked as a Municipal Liaison for OLL this past year, and believe me, the amount of work they do for us is simply astounding. I can't think of a more fun, stressful, and useful event for writers, and sincerely thank OLL for all that they do.

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

November 2008, 2009, 2010, and already unable to wait for 2011. I've gotten two polish-able novels out of NaNoWriMo, so many great friends, and a fantastic experience every year.

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

Give them more hands to help others with. They do so much great work with such a small staff. It's really amazing.

Role:  Volunteer & I was a municipal liaison, helping participants reach their goals, and provided space and a fun atmosphere to write in.
