A good discourse is that from which nothing can be retrenched without cutting into the quick.

François de Salignac de La Mothe-Fénelon

We thought this quote was from St. Francis de Sales!

Here's the story

St. Francis de Sales, the patron of writers, sets the tone for this project.
We seek to form a community committed to "a good discourse." 

A Good Discourse

As Catholics, we seek the truth. As Catholic writers, we hope to spread the Gospel by our words. However, when we get caught up in the world of our ideas, it can be difficult to see the souls behind the screens. Proving a point or winning an intellectual battle can result in lost friendships. 


The remedy is a community of Catholic writers who are committed to Christ in all our words, published or not. This community inspires a deeper faith, rooted and grounded in truth and charity. 


A Good Discourse seeks to build up Catholic writers of all kinds and bring them together to inspire dialogue, creativity, and comradery. The conference is designed to form this community and fuel the dialogue. Will you join us?
