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

Rating: 5 stars  

Among other works, the Office of Letters and Light organises NaNoWriMo, an amazing worldwide novel writing challenge. My taking part in the 2006 edition changed my life as I found out that I really could write a novel. Now a published writer, I donate every year, so others get a chance to go through the same experience. And of course, I still participate. The challenge is a great way to push one's writing further.

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

Rating: 5 stars  

When I tried my first NaNoWriMo, I didn't think such a thing as writing fifty thousand words in one month was possible. However, with a lot off support from the whole community, I succeeded. I even won the challenge five years in a row, finishing all my first drafts. In the meantime, I came to know myself as a writer, gain confidence and improve my writing skills. A revised version of my very first NaNoWriMo will be published this year. None of this would have been accomplished without all the hard work from the Office of Letters and Light, and I have to thank them for changing my life. This nonprofit makes wonders in the promotion of creative writing.

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

my personal life, as I evolved from someone who wrote a little for fun, to someone who writes a lot and goes all the way through projects.

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

enhance its international activity
