NEW!! Summer Camp (August 26 – 30, 2019; 9 – 12am)
Oaklands Chapel, 2736 Fernwood Road

Are you between the ages of 11-13? Do you dream about writing your own story, but aren’t sure where to start? Do you have a bunch of ideas stashed away and are looking for a way to pull it all together? Story Studio can help! During this half-day camp you will learn about developing characters, building effective plot structure, creating vibrant settings and more. Over the course of the week, we will work towards an individual, finished short story. Participants will receive their own bound and illustrated book with their original story inside. ($225/five half-day sessions)

In-School Workshops

This year, we are offering special ‘Bundles’ to schools throughout Southern Vancouver Island. Each Bundle consists of a week of workshops and events, plus teacher resources and individually bound books of student stories. Whenever possible, we offer workshops at a subsidized cost to encourage participation by youth of all socio-economic backgrounds.

Bookmaker Bundles (for Grades K-5 | Ages 5 – 10)

Wordplayer Bundles (for Grades 6-8 | Ages 11 – 13)

Our workshop was fantastic and I can hardly wait to participate next year! I enjoyed it/learned as much as the students did. (Teacher, Eagle View Elementary)
