           The Writers of Off Campus Writers' Workshop

         announce their first Anthology!

 

Copies are now available at our workshops on Thursday mornings at the Winnetka Community House, 620 Lincoln Avenue, Winnetka.


"Overcoming: An Anthology by the Writers of OCWW" is the

first of a new series featuring the writers of Off-Campus Writers’ Workshop, the oldest continuously operating workshop of its type in the United States. Published by RADMAR Publishing Group, "Overcoming" is edited by Richard Davidson, past President and member of OCWW. This vibrant anthology covers many aspects of overcoming life’s problems, obstacles, and challenging developments. The contributing writers have used fiction, non-fiction, memoir, poetry, historical chronicle, and drama to highlight our continuing need to overcome our problems, rather than dwell on them. The reader will learn the skills needed to respond constructively, energetically, and sometimes humorously to whatever obstacle bars one’s path.

"Overcoming: An Anthology by the Writers of OCWW" is available in paperback (ISBN 978-0-9829160-4-9) from amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com and other online vendors. The book can also be ordered from most bookstores in the United States and the United Kingdom.

OCWW is a community of writers. One of the perks of being a member is being able to join the OCWW Yahoo Group listserv.  When a member joins the listserv you can then post information regarding the craft of writing, questions you want to ask others about who, what, where and when and announcements regarding successes. A dialogue occurs and all of a sudden support and help are on the way.
