Story Planet Launches Anthology of Toronto Teen Writers!

Infinite Fictions by Upcoming Writers from Another Reality is the collective endeavour of young people envisioning a place for themselves in this and alternate realities.

On Friday, November 22, 2013, Story Planet’s teen writers will launch their anthology, Infinite Fictions at The Intergalactic Travel Authority at 1165 Bloor Street West. The evening will feature performances and readings. No cover for the launch. Books will be available for sale.

Infinite Fictions collects stories and poems of mesmerizing science fiction, fantasy and alternate dimensions, from the imaginations of some of Toronto’s best writers under eighteen. Over eight months, a group of teenaged Toronto writers met weekly at Story Planet to write, edit and plan an anthology of the fantastic.

“Stories are our way of creating ourselves and telling the world who we are and what we think. Stories give our lives meaning and colour, so that we are more than just creatures with a pulse.’”
— Story Planet Teen Writers

“They explored their capacity to imagine in the hopes of inventing other worlds that often seem real.”
— Anthony De Sa

World’s Longest Story Goes Galactic

We see all kinds of visitors coming through the Intergalactic Travel Authority, and this week was no exception– an honest-to-goodness alien stopped by!  This citizen of Adorablius XI was just tickled by our ongoing attempt at writing the World’s Longest Story, and generously offered to record some of her planet’s folklore.

…Looks like her translator was on the fritz, though– can any of you read Adorablian runes?  Luckily, she provided some stellar alien illustrations to let us follow along even if we haven’t brushed up on our interplanetary dialects lately.

Swing by the ITA to try to decipher her entry and add a few lines yourself!
