Unofficial Patron Saints of...?

Perhaps (though not officially) these saints could be the patrons of these categories.
Really, though, they aren't officially the patrons of the categories.

Unofficial Patron saints in writing:
Poems - St. Francis of Assisi (He loved to compose songs for God. Certain songs actually do rhyme.)

-St. Therese of Lisieux (click here for her poems)

-King David (He's officially the patron saint as he composed the psalms, all 150 of them!)

Biographies, Autobiographies, and Non-Fiction - St. John The Evangelist (All the gospel writers actually)

Reports, Essays, Letters & Blogs - St. Paul the Apostle (I asked for his intercession once while writing an essay and was finished with it in less than an hour!)

Fiction - St. Catherine Labore (When her little brother broke his leg and was confined to bed, she entertained him by telling him stories)

Plays - St. Therese of Lisieux (She and her sisters once put on a play about St. Joan of Arc)

Evangelizing through media - Bl. James Alberione and Mother Tecla (Bl. James founded the Pauline community and Mother Tecla was among the first. Click here for more information about them, or go to the Daughters of St. Paul website.)

The Official Patron Saint of writers - St. Francis de Sales

Loved heariing how St. Paul helped you with your essay. We should spread the word to all college kids. Even newspaper or magazine writers. Great idea.
