My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for The Office of Letters and Light, Berkeley, CA, USA
I've been following the Office of Letters and Light since 2008. I've participated in the past five National Novel Writing Months and the past four Script Frenzys and I have to say that I've loved every single minute of it! The 30-day time limit is a wonderful prod to get yourself writing and honestly it's motivated me more than anything else ever has. The community is incredibly inviting and helpful. No matter what you enjoy writing - scripts, poetry, fiction, nonfiction, something else entirely - there is a place for here! There are forums, pep talks from published authors, and tons of resources for writers of any level. It's a ton of fun. They also sponser a Young Writers Program that promotes writing and storybuilding in schools and libraries. Programs like these are so essential now, especially with budgets forcing schools to cut back on creative outlets. The Office of Letters and Light is wonderful at fostering creativity and I can't thank them enough for it. I don't know where I'd be with my writing or my life without NaNo and Screnzy or the fabulous people who make it all possible. Thank you, OLL, for all you do! Whether you write professionally or you scribble for fun you should definitely give these sites a visit.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
my story writing, class essay writing, and just everyday life!
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
give them more resources to reach out to more people. I really can't think of any way they could improve that they haven't thought of already.
