Workshops for Teens, The Write Space Workshop, TIFF Next Wave Committee, Our Mad Libs Story Battle Fundraiser and Our Next Storymaking App Workshop

High school students, are you ready for exam season?

On Sunday, May 31 and Sunday, June 7, you’re invited to join Rachael Frankford, MSW, RSW, Social Worker and mindfulness/yoga teacher for a Teen Stress Buster workshop that’ll give you the tools you need to manage your stress during exam season.

Good luck in the coming weeks, students!

The Write Space with Vikki VanSickle
This Thursday, Author Vikki VanSickle will start off our next Write Space Series with a discussion about the ever-intimidating publishing process. She’ll talk about what to expect when finding an agent, working with an editor, promoting your own work and more.

Vikki’s workshop will take place in our space on Thursday from 6:30-9pm. Each seat at the writer’s table costs $50. Follow this link to find out more about the workshop and reserve your spot!

TIFF Next Wave Committee
The TIFF Next Wave Committee is a group of students between the ages of 15 and 18 who live in the GTA and share a passion for film. While the Committee members all have different tastes, opinions and plans for their future careers, they’ve all demonstrated an enthusiasm that has impressed TIFF leaders.

With the guidance of TIFF employees, the Committee gets to plan some of the major teen-oriented events at TIFF Bell Lightbox, including the TIFF Next Wave Film Festival.

If you’d like to join the TIFF Next Wave Committee, follow this link to find out how to apply!

The TIFF Next Wave Committee is supported by The Slaight Family Foundation Learning Fund.

Mad Libs Story Battle
We still have tickets available for our Mad Libs Story Battle fundraiser!

Our theme for this year’s event is “Eat, Drink, and be Mad.” The evening will include delicious treats, drinks and a panel of celebrity chefs/authors to help crown the 2015 winning Mad Libs team.

All proceeds from this event will go toward funding Story Planet’s unique writing and arts programming for kids and teens. Click this link to get your tickets before all the seats have been filled!

We’re working on a new storymaking app and we need your input! Kids between the ages of 7 and 11 are invited to join us on Saturday, May 30 (from 10:30am-12pm) to help us design a storytelling app that’ll help kids like them create and share their stories.

The registration cost of this workshop is pay what you can. Contact Liz at for more information or to sign up. If you’ve come to one of our past app making workshops, we’d love your input on this one too!
