News About Our Mad Libs Story Battle and Looking Forward to Our Upcoming Storymaking App, Teen Stress Buster, and Write Space Workshops

Fellow space explorers, unfortunately, we had to cancel our upcoming Mad Libs Story Battle scheduled for this upcoming Thursday.

We’re sorry to anyone who was looking forward to the event. But if you’d still like to show your love to Story Planet, it’s never too late to donate online to support our awesome after-school programming that’s FREE to students or, better yet, sign up for one of our workshops!

As well, on June 18, we’ll be hosting our first ever Open House! Come by for an amazing silent auction, free wine, beer and nibbles and some great entertainment. Drop in for a bit, stay for a while! We’ll announce more about this event soon!

The Write Space: Turning to Page 2 with Joseph Kertes
Are you writing a book? Are you confident in the first page of your manuscript? If so, bring it with you to our next Write Space Workshop with Joseph Kertes on Thursday, June 4 and present it to the rest of the workshop class. The other writers at the table will act as editors, telling you what works, what doesn’t, and whether they felt compelled to flip to page 2.

Each seat at the writer’s table costs $50. Follow this link to find out more about the workshop and reserve your spot!
