My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for The Office of Letters and Light, Berkeley, CA, USA
I found this organization through a program at our library, and after checking out their website, decided to participate in the program. It was a totally amazing experience! They provided all the support and encouragement a writer needs to write a novel, even a forum for participants to communicate and support each other. There is even a program for local (physical) support through the Municipal Liaison program where volunteers provide help and encouragement in their areas. This allows aspiring writers to focus on their writing. They even have a Young Writers program, which encourages increased literacy in younger people. It is amazing to see how people who don't think they have anything to write turn around and be completely enthused about writing a novel. I've participated for 2 years now, and plan to continue participating for as long as I can. It is amazing what energy there is when a group of people get together and work on meeting their word count. Thanks for starting this and continuing to support writers and soon-to-be writers!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
participating in the forums, having my questions answered by other members, getting support from the organization's Municipal Liaisons.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
start offering writing retreats.
