Announcing: Quests for LegendFiction

A Quest is like a like short story contest. It can be open-ended and ongoing. It's a way to feature special prompts and inspire authors to get creative. 

Dominic de Souza
In the last 6 months, CatholicAuthor has hosted several exciting and successful short story contests. We invited teens and authors to submit their creativity for review and publication.

Out of this amazing stream of entries, we launched a website dedicated to helping authors get published, get feedback, and get discovered. It’s called LegendFiction.

Now, we’re opening up a new opportunity: Quests.

A Quest is like a like short story contest. It can be open-ended and ongoing. It’s a way to feature special prompts and inspire authors to get creative.

Quests are simple: suggest a theme, perhaps an opening phrase, or a required word use. Include a first story, or a first paragraph.

For the time being, only mentors and partners can start a Quest. They can start as many as they like.

If they choose to partner with CatholicAuthor, we can turn them into a print-on-demand magazine, as crisp and beautiful as Pennon, the CatholicAuthor Journal.

Partners get extra space and support. As an organization, ministry, or college, your logo, link, and endorsement is published on the Quest page. You get to write a welcome letter, and reserve the entirety of the printable Quest publication for your brand.

We believe that creativity should be rewarded with time, attention, and money – whenever possible! That’s why our CatholicAuthor mentors invest personal time in reading every submission, and giving feedback.

We publish quality entries to share them with our growing LegendFiction readership.

And we encourage Quest partners to offer prizes to the best story submitted.

For our writers, all Quest entries must follow the same rules and parameters set for all our contests.

We look forward to your Quests, and creativity!

Ask us today about hosting your own Quest for our community.

    Don’t quite understand what the Quest Legend is exactly. i know what a prompt is. Also is this mostly for teens? I will check out your Catholic Author site. I have written one novel & like other writers I am trying to find a way of publishing. Also have a blog, have written a number of short stories, poems etc. I am a senior citizen (not my favorite description of myself.)

Making characters grow and change with Screenwriting | Natalia Roberts | JPCatholic Student

Meet Natalia Roberts, a Junior Screenwriting student at John Paul the Great Catholic University. With Dominic, she explores how screenwriting really pushes you to think about characters, and follow a process to get a project done. Learn how writing for film is different to writing fiction. But, as Natalie points out, the way a screenwriter thinks can help short stories and novels get stronger faster – by focusing better on creating great characters!

How to write fiction for radio (or audio shows) | A Merry Beggars Workshop | Peter Atkinson

NEWS FLASH: The Merry Beggars are looking to work with, employ, collaborate, and pay writers across the USA. They have an ongoing content need for content! They need between 30-60 minutes of scripts every single week. Plus, they pay writers!

This short, intense workshop starts with the medium of audio and how it works. Then we go through different styles of audio drama that affect how you’re writing and what type of show it is. We go quickly into why writers should seriously consider audio. Then we’ll screenshare several real-life scripts created from stories.

By the end, fiction writers will understand the excitement of radio drama, how it’s different to writing short stories. And if you’re up for it, you can create and submit your ideas to the Merry Beggars!

ABOUT PETER ATKINSON
Peter went to Columbia University for their graduate program in acting, starred off Broadway, founded a media company, sold it to Relevant Radio, and now heads up Relevant Radio’s entertainment division.
