How to be a Catholic Author
Helping authors write exciting novels, connect faith with fiction, and be a better Catholic!
We built CatholicAuthor for creators like you
Writing is a daily passion. And so is our faith! Authors need to build connections with other writers, share experiences, and encourage each other to keep going.
But after watching the online Catholic space for 10 years, we saw hundreds of creators struggle to find a home that works beautifully, gives them the freedom to be faithful and creative, and helps their journey to publish and sell!
So, we launched CatholicAuthor: a community to help ordinary, faithful Catholic writers come together, share resources and insights, and grow in faith and fiction.
After your word processor… we want to be your 2nd favorite daily tab!
Welcome home. Welcome to the future. Welcome, Catholic Author.
Discover new authors, explore favorite genres, and bookmark favorites. Together, we’re inspiring a new generation of fun and fiction!
