Our Story

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.

Learn to write great stories with our free Storysheets!

Great stories don’t just happen. Our free StorySheets are designed to help you plan and think through your story. You can print them out and fill them in, or download the fillable PDF versions and complete them on a computer.

Get involved in a Story Studio program!

We offer a wide range of workshops, from one-hour ‘fun first’ sessions to online writing groups that run year-round. Much of our programming is available to youth all across Canada, (although we’re based in Victoria, BC). Programs are delivered in-person following COVID protocols, or online using our virtual classroom.Many of our programs are offered at no charge and, when we do have to charge a fee, we aim to keep the cost of our programming low for everyone.
