Little Flower High School welcomed 20 published authors for hands-on writing discussions with students during the day-long Little Flower Teen Writers Festival on Saturday, April 18.
The festival, whose theme was “The Power of Words,” was dedicated to freshman Shea McKnight, who died recently. Last year Little Flower teacher Immaculate Heart Sister Kimberly Miller and author K.M. Walton organized the inaugural festival.
“At Little Flower, we believe that if our students read for pleasure they will be life-long learners, so what better way to get my students excited about reading than by introducing them to the authors they are already reading and loving?” she said. “And since my students have great respect for their work, then who better to help us as educators to teach them how to be better writers?” (Photos by Sarah Webb)
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.
