Meeting Online Thursdays, 11-12pm

Are you a young writer with the drive to write, but you need some direction? Have you written a story, but it’s not running smoothly and could use a tune-up? Bring your story to the Story Garage!
This 4-week series of online workshops and resources will help your stories take off at full throttle! You will have access to an online classroom, where you will learn about plot structure, compelling characters, and other narrative essentials while improving your own story.
Story Studio instructors will provide you with advice during weekly one-hour sessions via Google Meet, and also give you the chance to work with experienced local authors and illustrators. At the end of the workshops, all participants will receive a digital anthology composed of their completed short stories.
The Story Studio Writing Society began in 2011 with the hope of bringing creativity and confidence into children’s lives by giving them the tools to tell stories of their own, in their own words and with their own illustrations. The aim was to remove boundaries and allow children to lead their stories wherever they wanted. And we have done just that for almost 10,000 youth.
