Welcome Letter from the Founder

Each quarter, something new is created and shared to further the fun we’re having on this sacred pilgrimage of life.
And this time, it’s a host of updates to celebrate our first anniversary as a community!

We began in 2021 as CatholicAuthor, and grew faster than we thought possible. Not with quantity, but with quality – a stellar cohort of teens and authors who thrive on joining contests, and creating an inspiring home online.

So, in time for our first online convention, we re-launched CatholicAuthor as LegendFiction. You can read the announcement within this issue.

We’ve also officially welcomed both teens and authors together into a single community, and launched our mentor program.

Our list of allies does not grow thin, either.

Select printing houses, sponsors, and universities are keeping an eye on what we’re doing. And that’s exciting for us, because we want to build more than a getaway for delightful dorkery.

We want to build a gateway to your creative saga. We want to help you with your writing journey from idea to publication. Part of that is pointing you to publication opportunities!

For now, we’re doubling down on writing quests and contests, packed with prompts to keep you in the zone.

We’ve had writers tell us they’ve never written so much in their lives as when they joined this community.

And the key?

The support and encouragement of friends and peers.

Now, we want to share this incredible community with the wider world of faith-inspired, Catholic and Orthodox fiction authors.

At any time, you can send in your ideas and suggestions. We listen carefully to everything!

Till next time, keep writing,
