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

Rating: 5 stars  

NaNoWriMo and the Office of Letters and Light made writing communal, and that is difficult to do. It brings together hundreds of people with passion to network and write, and enjoy doing so for the sake of it. This event is a wonderful opportunity to make friends and recognize your potential. One wonderful woman I met during NaNo, happened to live in my area. We're now good friends who support each other not only in our writing endeavours, but also in other pursuits. NaNo helped me work with my low self-esteem too. It's a funny thing, that such a simple event, writing a novel, can do that. But it did, and I'm so glad OLL gave me the opportunity to take up the challenge. It teaches us that things can change, that life has a lot of drafts. It's brilliant.

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

Taking time to pursue writing and challenging myself, opening up to new people, and learning about myself and life.

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

The organization is run brilliantly. There have been some lag problems (with the website) but that is a result of the platform (Drupal) and is always promptly dealt with each year. I have no changes to suggest.

Role:  Client Served & I wrote a novel, and made brilliant friends. Now I'm pursuing an education in publishing.
