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)
