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

Rating: 5 stars  

The Office of letters and light provide free literary services to adults and children alike. Personally I have taken part in their Nanowrimo writing challenge for three years running and have improved my own writing speed and style in a forum where I am challenged and supported by peers world wide that I would otherwise have had absolutely no opportunity to communicate with. There is nothing else like The office of letters and light, and their work with the young writers program within schools and community is unsurpassed.

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

Rating: 5 stars  

Nanowrimo was a fantastic experience for me. It provides a community of like minded people across the world all working for a common goal, and that is for everyone who wants to, to achieve the writing of a novel within a one month period. Everyone who achieves this, wins. It is inclusive, encouraging and motivational. I now have two Nano-novels to my credit thanks to Nanowrimo. Writing a novel isnt just about producing a bunch of words either, it's about setting out to achieve a goal, applying self discipline, taking part in a community, helping others, and being pro-active by taking "i think i can" to "look at me I'm doing it".

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

by finding out that I can actually produce 1667 words of creative writing every day.

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

have November twice a year instead of just once.
