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.






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.

Putting Life on the Page

Speaker: Caroline S. Cooper

Thursday, February 9, 2017 at 7 p.m. (Click here for meeting location and details)


Our lives and identities are shaped by past events, present choices, and future hopes. As writers, when we allow our personality to influence the act of putting pen to the page, or filling a computer screen with text, we add a new dimension to our writing. We move beyond static words that can be void of emotion. This presentation will look at how we can infuse our writing with a part of ourselves to make our projects more authentic.


Caroline S. Cooper has written Bible studies and other works for over 25 years. Her recent nonfiction projects relate to Christian life, mental health, and parenting/family experiences. Caroline has a Masters in Bible and Theology from Calvary Theological Seminary in Kansas City, Missouri and a Bachelor of Music from the University of Texas at Arlington. In addition to literary works, Caroline is an experienced arranger and composer for a variety of music styles for the worship setting. Caroline and her husband live in Lee’s Summit, Missouri and have been married for more than 30 years. They have four children and two grandchildren.
