failures (and why), and the challenges of dealing with conflict in

affected by your experiences. How have your opinions about conflict in
community been changed, validated, or surprised?  For example, "I used to
think such-and-such, but now I think such-and-such." How might your story
help others who are living in or interested in communities?

Our Contributors: We want to hear from anyone with a story to
tell--community members, founders, or seekers; writers or budding writers;
people with specialized knowledge; academic researchers. Write about your
community, or one you're familiar with, or about several, comparing &
        You don't have to be an experienced or polished writer, or ever

hear from you!
