Twenty published authors came to Little Flower High School Saturday, April 26 for the Little Flower Teen Writer’s Festival. They hosted break-out sessions for the students in the all-day event whose theme was “How to write (and illustrate) like you mean it.” It was organized by Little Flower teacher and Immaculate Heart Sister Kimberly Miller and author K.M. Walton, who was also the keynote speaker. The authors included Walton, who wrote the critically acclaimed “Cracked and Empty;” Beth Kephart, award winning author of “Small Damages” and Judy Schachner, best-selling author of the “SkippyJon Jones” series.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
