About Kansas Writers Association

A little history

Kansas Writers Association became a Not for Profit organization in 1996. Through the following years it has hosted contests and the former Scene of the Crime conference. It is a writers’ group that is constantly evolving and working to fill the needs of aspiring and accomplished writers in the Wichita, Kansas area.

Our mission is to inform, support, encourage and promote the writer.

Writers today have more opportunities than ever to distribute their work. Our members  write in all genres, in fiction and non-fiction, and publish traditionally and electronically. Let us help you hone your skills, polish your work, network with other writers, and put you on the path to publication!
