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

Rating: 5 stars  

I started writing at a very young age, but only first participated in National Novel Writing Month, as hosted by the Office of Letters and Light, last year.

Despite the fact I've only been involved once, I cannot express enough gratitude to the Office. I met new people, was inspired to write and was often amused and given support by those who had no reason to amuse or support me.

The fact that the Office of Letters and Light exists to do those things is no doubt a major reason I finished my 50 000 word novel and truly endorsed my love of creative writing.

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

making friends, getting writing advice and getting a confidence boost in my own ability to write quickly and fairly well.

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

definitely add infrastructure, which can obviously only be done through donations, but only to augment the amazing work they already do.

Will you volunteer or donate to this organization beyond what is required of board members?


How much of an impact do you think this organization has?

A lot

Will you tell others about this organization?


How did you learn about this organization?
