The subtitle on our website reads: “The rebirth of Catholic Arts and Letters”. That's our goal, and I truly believe it's a worthwhile – and possible – one. A rebirth of the greatness of Catholic Arts can happen in the same way it's happened time and again: through striving for excellence, engaging the culture, and coming together in fellowship.
It worked for great Catholic writers in all times, from St. Paul and St. Luke, to Aquinas and Anselm, to Chesterton and Belloc… to you and I today, if we're willing.
We have active critique groups, awards, conferences (both online and in-person), writing retreats, and much more. Please start exploring what the Guild has to offer, and contribute whenever and however you feel able. We're happy to have you!
Thanks & God bless,
Catholic Writers Guild President
