Programs

Every program we offer is designed to draw out the wonderfully creative ideas that students have, giving them a framework to successfully tell their stories.  We encourage kids to explore language and ideas without becoming anxious about the mechanics of writing. Students leave our sessions with stronger narrative skills, expressing themselves clearly and confidently using  their own unique voice. Our programs foster enthusiastic, confident young writers.

Out-of-School Workshops

We offer special workshops for youth throughout the school year: on professional development days; over winter holidays; and during March Break. Please join our mailing list to stay up-to-date with upcoming events and workshops!

Community Programming

The Story Studio often offers community programming in partnership with organizations such as Victoria Literacy Connection, the Royal British Columbia Museum, the Victoria Art Gallery, and the Greater Victoria Public Library. If you are an organization interested in partnership, please contact us.
