Our goal is to equip and encourage you, no matter where you are on your writing journey.

Do you have a dream to write, but don’t know where to start?


Would you like to learn how to put your words on paper and reach other people?

Do you know something about writing for publication, but would like to improve your skills and sell more of your work?

Or perhaps you’re looking for a group of people who understand what it’s like to be a writer.

HACWN Conference

HACWN 2016 Conference

October 20-22, 2016

Embrace the Call

“I took you from the ends of the earth, from its farthest corners I called you” Isaiah 41:9

Isaiah 41 gives us marvelous messages about God calling us…and being with us. So we’ve chosen that as our conference theme this year. If you feel the desire to write, chances are He’s called you to that . . . whether you’re writing for publication, for your family, or even if you’re not sure what you’re to do with your writing right now.


No matter what the direction, Embrace the Call. Embrace HIS Call on your life.






Heart of America Christian Writers’ Network could be the organization for you!


HACWN is designed to help beginning, intermediate and advanced writers grow in their skills, networking, and professionalism.

We do that through monthly meetings with experienced editors and writers, various HACWN writing conferences and seminars, weekly critique groups in different areas of the city, e-mail communication, market leads, and more.

Developing Your Presence on Linked In!


Thursday, November 10, 2016 at 7 p.m. (Click here for meeting location and details)


Every  writer should be represented on Linked In, Anne Rauth says. And Anne is ready to tell you why, how Linked In can help you as a writer, and how to make full use of this tool.

Anne is new to writing for publication, but well-seasoned in the fields of marketing, promotion, and advertising. She has worked in the Advertising and Hallmark Hall of Fame divisions of Hallmark cards, as well as at other Fortune 500 companies, such as H&R Block managing national promotions and sponsorships.

Anne is a firm believer in the power of Linked In for authors to promote their work and make contacts. She will teach you how to get the most out of this valuable networking tool.
