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

Rating: 5 stars  

The staff at OLL are all incredible at motivating and keeping us writers going throughout the year. They work tirelessly to develop the support they offer and have the highest intentions for everyone involved. The Young Writers Program benefits hugely from everyone's efforts and it feels so good to be a part of it all. I love sharing with other local writers about the benefits of signing up with Nanowrimo and seeing them blossom.
I cannot recommend highly enough!

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

Rating: 5 stars  

Nanowrimo was one of those serendipitous finds that can happen when surfing the net. I cannot remember how I got there, but I do remember the date - 1st October 2010! As I made my way around the site, I recall thinking, why did I not know of its existence before? I signed up immediately and haven't looked back since. Whether you are new to writing, or wanting inspiration to practice your art, Nanowrimo fits the bill. The fact that it not only supports aspiring writers but also provides support through the Young Writers Program means that you get to give something back too. The website is extremely well thought out and enables you to feel part of the larger (international) writing community. There are forums and a great buddy system too, all geared to supporting, you the writer. I found the stats particularly motivating as they give you visual feedback on how you are going in relation to the 50,000 word challenge. I was a first time winner and committed to signing up each year from now on - can't imagine a November without it. Have also signed up for Script Frenzy in April. Can't wait!

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

supporting me to write a novel from scratch. I received the motivational emails and watched the videos made by OLL staff.

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

I cannot speak highly enough of this organisation and the fabulous people who run it. I honestly cannot think of any changes necessary. They are great!
