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

Rating: 5 stars  

I became aware of the NaNoWriMo program through one of my students who was taking on the challenge for the second time. She now has two novels written before the age of 18, and showed a keen sense of determination in following this program throughout the month.

I believe that their structure will contribute to a whole new amazing generation of writers, and engender a first hand appreciation of what it takes to write a novel.

Thanks so much for the experience.

Try to give them more publicity. I found out very late in the year about the Writing program. I will be prepared for next year, and have done a bit of promotion among my peers at school.

Role:  General Member of the Public & I was curious and signed up too. The practice of writing that resulted was a great learning experience for me. The Office of Letters and Light is so supportive in all ways, emotional and strategic, as well as being a wonderful structure for the procrast.
