About CatholicAuthor

Our CatholicAuthor community exists to support a special kind of creator. A faithful Catholic who loves to tell great stories for all ages and all genres, and inspired by their Faith.

These are the two pillars of our approach, because we believe that being a Catholic author is more than a hobby. It is intensely fun and rewarding and hard work.

But it is also a path, like a vocation. We are subcreators within the holy mystery of God. Co-creators of the world we live in.

So its paramount that we learn to understand ourselves, our world, and our faith – so that our characters, stories, and ideas can rivet and fascinate our readers.

When we support you in your writing, we’re helping you build a network of friends. You’ve got a safe space made up of faith-inspired creatives like you, who want to see the world the same way you do.

Our Catholic world is a spectrum of loves and divisions. CatholicAuthor anchors ourselves firmly in the SmartCatholics ethos:

A community of faithful, ordinary Catholics in the modern world, free of trolls, toxicity, and ads, faithful to our Holy Father Pope Francis and the Church, and committed to a culture of kindness and learning.

    Hello,

    I am a college student and I am interested in the CatholicAuthor scholarship. To apply you ask for my student ID. I’m a little confused as to what you are asking for. Do you want the student ID number that was given to me by my university or do you want a valid student email?

      Hi Melissa, either is fine. I don’t know if all universities provide emails. :)

There be Dragons: Dragons 101 with Dominic de Souza & Katy Campbell | The LegendFiction Show

This talk will premiere on November 26, during our LegendHaven convention. Join us for the watch party and live Q&A afterward! http://legendhaven.com

Most people are terrified of the idea of dragons. And yes, we should be, because the idea of a dragon is meant to be frightening. But not everything we fear is evil. Dominic and Katy go back to basics with dragons in storytelling, the purpose of a symbol, and why context is critical to understand its meaning. Then they talk about the 3 kinds of dragons present in western tradition, and how modern day has gifted us a new kind of dragon that we must learn to honor and respect. Most importantly, we hope this panel and these opinions help parents, authors, and readers discuss dragons with greater nuance.

How to be a faith-inspired fiction author with Dominic de Souza

How to be a faith-inspired fiction author with Dominic de Souza

The world is starving for stories, and the sense of hope and adventuring they bring us. But many stories today aren’t helpful, or are even harmful to readers. That’s why we need faith-inspired fiction writers! Dominic, founder of LegendFiction, explores the idea that every generation’s job is translating the Gospel into the tropes and themes and language of their time. Most importantly, we need to accept our own adventures, because the best novels come from the depths of our love for reality, with all its darkness and light.

Crafting Deep Cultures for Fantastic Worlds with Mary Woods

Crafting Deep Cultures for Fantastic Worlds with Mary Woods

This talk will premiere on November 26, during our LegendHaven convention. Join us for the watch party, Markmaker book launch, and live Q&A afterward! http://legendhaven.com

What makes for deep, believable worldbuilding? How can writers create unique fictional societies that deal with resonant moral questions and themes? Join sci-fi/fantasy author Mary Jessica Woods for a discussion on crafting vivid cultures for your stories and characters.

ABOUT MARY WOODS
Mary Jessica Woods was raised and homeschooled in the Chicago suburbs, where she read as many adventure stories as she could get her hands on. At the age of ten, she realized she was doomed to be a writer and has been following the muse ever since. Still seeking adventure, she headed out west to Wyoming Catholic College, where she climbed mountains, rappelled off cliffs, and studied the Great Books.

After graduating summa cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in the Liberal Arts, she returned to the Midwest to work as an editor. Mary also volunteers as an editorial assistant for the literary magazine Dappled Things, and her nonfiction has appeared in America Magazine, Catholic World Report, and First Things. In her mind, she spends most of her time on distant planets or alien spaceships, but she actually lives in rural Michigan.

Why we need Strange & Epic Storytelling with Deacon Nicholas Kotar | LegendFiction

Why we need Strange & Epic Storytelling with Deacon Nicholas Kotar | LegendFiction

This talk will premiere on November 26, during our LegendHaven convention. Join us for the watch party and live Q&A afterward! http://legendhaven.com

Deacon Nicholas is passionate about storytelling as one of the most important calls we can have – especially today. Modern media doesn’t know what it’s doing with story, and doesn’t understand the power of shared human experience across time and culture. Deacon outlines a recent re-wilding experience, the surprising creativity that came from it, and how Camelot must live in tension with the Green Chapel.

ABOUT NICHOLAS KOTAR
Nicholas Kotar is a writer of epic fantasy inspired by Russian fairy tales, a freelance translator from Russian to English, the resident conductor of a men’s choir at a Russian monastery in the middle of cow country, and a Grammy-nominated vocalist. His only regret in life is that he wasn’t born in 19th century St. Petersburg, but he’s doing everything he possibly can to remedy that error. If anyone knows where he can find a blue police box that’s bigger on the inside, please let him know.
