We hit a bit of turbulence last week when our Thursday night Write Space workshop for adult writers was rescheduled (to this Thursday, December 18) due to interplanetary blizzards… but it wasn’t long before we were back on track! The very next day, we welcomed the grade 4 class from Thorncliffe Park Public School for their very own Alpha Workshop during which they got a very important assignment from Mars..!
Write Space Workshop with Brian Francis
ADULT WRITERS: If you thought you’d missed your chance to attend our Write Space workshop with author Brian Francis, you’re in luck! We had to cancel last week’s event because of the snowstorm, but we’re definitely back on for THIS THURSDAY at 6:30!
During his class, Brian will be discussing how to use technology and social media as well as self-publishing options to boost your creativity.
We’re sorry to those who might have been inconvenienced by the last minute rescheduling of last week’s event, but we’re looking forward to seeing you this Thursday!

Thorncliffe Park Public School’s Alpha Workshop
Last Friday, the grade 4 class from Thorncliffe Park Public School came to Story Planet for an Alpha Workshop and received an unexpected phone call from the publishing office on Mars! The students were given a very important assignment: to write and publish 20 original stories by the end of the day. As a result of their hard work and collaboration, by the end of the workshop, our 20 students were successful in their mission and the Mars office was saved! Thanks again to the kids who helped out. We had so much fun!
