Announcing: The new YouTube show Silhouettes of the Truth

The show about Catholic fiction for ordinary, modern authors! We talk creed, craft, and co-creation, rooted in grit, grace, gods, and dragons. Let’s inspire your faith and your fiction!

Why this title?

In the 4th century, St Basil outlined a mindset for his students, on how they should approach sacred and secular literature. His insights are the cornerstone of our approach at CatholicAuthor:

We shall become more intimately acquainted with these precepts in the sacred writings, but it is incumbent upon us, for the present, to trace, as it were, the silhouette of virtue in the [secular] authors.

You can check out the list of all the 7 quotes here.

In crafting fiction, we are also haunted by and hunting the ‘silhouettes’ of truth, beauty, and goodness that are dimly seen through stories. Human beings and human stories are full of flaws and fascination. As authors, we are drawn to dramatize the realities of the spiritual, mystical, and mortal life.

That’s why we’re starting a new show, to meet and introduce Catholic authors who enjoy and agree with our mission. Every author has read (or skimmed!) our free ‘How to be a Catholic Author‘ course. Our convos will circle their own approach and insights.

Here’s our idea so far of the segments:

Welcome
Discuss the Book
Meet the Author
Favorite legend
Origins of the Novel
Worldbuilding
Book Theme
Writing tips
A message to Catholic authors
