My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for The Office of Letters and Light, Berkeley, CA, USA
Free, meaningful, fun...those are just a few of the words that come to mind when I think of OLL and its programs. NANOWRIMO stands out, of course, because it has the most publicity (and why not?), but OLL does so much more for those lucky visitor-recipients of all its bounty. NANO has served as a springboard for a number of follow-up personal writing projects among local writers in my area and my 2010 novel has provided a foundation for at least three or four short chapter books that I plan to write. And it wouldn't have happened without the creativity, generosity, and low-level, harmless insanity of the folks at OLL.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Five high-octane writing marathons in the last six years.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
provide funding for more staff.
