For nearly 9 years we have watched our Compassion Blogger Network grow. We have been blessed by your posts, your encouragement during trips, and most of all how serious you take the call to use your gifts for God’s glory.

Quite simply, your writing has been, and is, helping people. More specifically, your writing is helping children living in desperate poverty. So it is an honor to introduce you to Hope*writers.

For all that you have done to help others, Hope*writers wants to help you.

Hope*writers is a growing monthly membership community founded by Compassion Bloggers Emily P. Freeman and Myquillyn Smith (The Nester), as well as their dad, Gary Morland and Dr. Brian J. Dixon.

Hope*writers is for people like you who write about hope, value encouragement, and want practical advice about writing as craft, business, and calling.

It’s for anyone who has ever felt stuck or uninspired, wishing for someone to ask all those questions you can’t Google.

As a member, you’ll learn to

  • become a better writer
  • clarify your message
  • share your work with confidence
  • find the tools you need to do the work you love (and freely ignore the rest)
  • maintain balance between writing and life

Basically, hope*writers is all about helping writers learn to market without losing your soul, hustle without losing your heart, and write without losing your mind.

Hope*writers is 15 dollars per month to be a member, but Emily and Myquillyn are graciously extending a special offer to Compassion Bloggers to join them for a trial membership for just one dollar for your first week.

That means for just a dollar, you’ll have complete access to the entire library of articles, training videos, interviews with authors and editors, as well as full access to their private Facebook community.

Simply visit to begin your week-long dollar membership today!
