Our Upcoming Writers Room Series, Writer’s Club, Story Club and Afterlight Book Club Meeting

Thank you to everyone who came out to participate/help out with our Author Fest Alpha Workshops. We visited four schools across Toronto in two days to host our galaxy-famous Alpha Workshops and had an absolute blast doing it!

Writers Room Series at Pauline Public School

Starting April 7, every Tuesday morning from 9:30-11:15am, students from Pauline Public School will receive extra writing support during school hours. This is a great opportunity for volunteers who are teacher candidates or who want to gain an in-school experience.

If you’re interested in helping out with any of the programs we’re putting together, let us know!

Writer’s Club

Monday Writer's Club

We’re very excited to announce the return of our Writer’s Club workshop. This FREE workshop series will give students grades 5-8 the chance to work on a range of creative writing projects; from stories to poems, songwriting to screenwriting, photo journalism to comedy, and any other forms they’d like to explore. You bring your ideas and we’ll supply paper and pens!

The program will run every Monday from 4-5pm starting April 20th.

To register please contact Joe at joe@storyplanet.ca or phone us at 416-645-1049.

The Last Edition of Story Club

Our third and final session of Story Club: Travel Guide starts April 30. This final installment of Story Club will be used along with the previous sessions and in conjunction with 826NYC to create a travel guide for young astronauts from Toronto and New York City alike.

This 5-week program will meet every Thursday afternoon from 3:45-5.
