Are you a Catholic writer loyal to the Magisterium and looking for a group of like-minded writers determined to assist each other in our publishing goals?
Are you an editor, publisher, or illustrator interested in furthering the development of quality faith-filled writings?
If so, the Catholic Writers' Guild may be for you.
The Catholic Writers Guild is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization of faithful Catholic writers, artists, editors, illustrators, and allies. We are headquartered in Indianapolis. Our mission is to help build a vibrant Catholic literary culture by offering educational programs that encourage Catholic spiritual growth, teach Catholic writers about their craft as well as how to sell and market their work. We are faithful to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church.
Our regular and alumni members are practicing Catholic writers, while institutional members are persons or companies supportive of Catholic writing; institutional members need not to be Catholic, but sympathetic to Catholic practices and morals.
If there isn't a chapter, it's very easy to start one. Simply download our chapter kit, find a bunch of Catholic writer friends and get started.
