Introducing the PraiseWriters Catholic Community

PraiseWriters is a membership community of writers who seek support, inspiration, and formation in both the craft of writing and the business of publishing and marketing.

Through a vibrant community platform, weekly LIVE insider interviews, a members-only newsletter, and exclusive discounts to courses and 1-1 coaching, we encourage Catholic writers to be obedient to the call God’s placed on their heart and take their creative place confidently in the Body of Christ.

We look forward to walking with you in your writers journey!
