News about our Adult Colouring and Wine Events, New Volunteering Opportunities with Story Planet, and Our Upcoming Story Planet Afterlight Book Club Event

Earthlings, we’ve got some great news! Following the initial success of our first-ever Adult Colouring and Wine event on November 10, tickets to our next three colouring events are already SOLD OUT!

Thank you all so much for your ongoing support. We’re really looking forward to colouring with you again. If you weren’t able to get a ticket in time, keep checking back to our blog and Twitter page for announcements about similar upcoming events.

As a reminder, ticket sales go toward our free literacy programming that help young people discover and develop their voices. Our innovative programs ignite students’ imaginations, fuel their curiosity and equip them with the tools they need to launch their stories. Most recently, our students learned how to make their own puppets! How cool!

If you’d like to donate to Story Planet’s literacy programming, click here to contribute online. We’ve also got great colouring books for sale at the Intergalactic Travel Authority (the cafe in the front half of our space), and markers and pencil crayons too!

If you’d like to help out around our space, we’ve still got lots of fun volunteering opportunities available for everyone from colouring enthusiasts, to writers, to video editors. Check it out!

Online Store
We are joining the intergalactic web of wares! Story Planet is launching an online store, and we are looking for two to four volunteers to take turns processing orders, uploading and placing pictures, and collaborating on other maintenance work surrounding the website. If you have experience in managing a website, and/or online merchandising, we would love for you to join us!

Kickstarter Campaign for Reggie Rainbow
Continuing the support for our illustrated storybook Reggie Rainbow, the Story Planet community is organizing a Kickstarter campaign to raise publication funds! We are looking for up to four volunteers, ideally with experience and at least with passion, for fundraiser organization, outreach, and bringing the voices of Story Planet participants to fruition!
