More About Meaningful Conflicts: Featuring the work of over 27 award-winning writers, Meaningful Conflicts takes readers on a multi-genre ride through a universe of discord and disputes. This anthology was crafted, edited, and produced by the members of the Off Campus Writers’ Workshop, one of the country’s longest, continuously running writing workshops. Editors Peter Hoppock and Renee James teamed up again to oversee this creative endeavor after producing Turning Points, OCWW’s 75th Anniversary anthology. In considering the anthology’s theme, Ms. James says, “All storytelling is conflict. If there is no conflict, there is no story, just a letter to Santa Claus.”

Off Campus Writers’ Workshop is a member-managed non-profit organization that has helped thousands of aspiring writers learn the art and craft of creative writing. The combined works represent a full spectrum of OCWW members, from those engaged in creative writing for the first time in their lives to established authors with many publishing credits to their names. What they have in common is a passion for creative writing and an eagerness to work together to make each person’s writing better.
