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

Rating: 5 stars  

When I was younger I always wanted to be a writer. I'd almost given up on that dream until I found The Office of Letters and Light and their NaNoWriMo program. It's so motivational and supportive in so many ways. The pep talks sent out every week are wonderful, and even the other participants are always so nice and helpful. It felt great to be part of such a strong writing community. And most importantly, NaNoWriMo helped me to finally write my first novel! I was finally able to push through it with the support of the OLL, and the sense of accomplishment and pride it gave me was amazing! I know there are plenty of others with this same story, especially other teenagers like me. I'd say The Office of Letters and Light is one of the best nonprofit programs for getting young people, and older adults as well, involved in the arts.

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

the creation of my two wonderful novels. I'm more proud of myself for being able to write them than I ever would have believed. OLL has made my life a happier place. :)

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

Besides maybe a few website layout changes, I wouldn't change a thing. I had literally zero issues with the way the organization is run.

Role:  General Member of the Public & I've written two novels thanks to their support.
