March Break Camp 2024

Do you know a young writer between the ages of 9 and 12 looking to take the next step with their stories? 

Over five 3-hour sessions, participants explore fun opportunities to learn about plot structure, compelling characters, and other essentials for crafting fiction while learning from Story Studio staff and experienced visiting local authors and illustrators. Participants will work to write their own short stories, and receive their own bound and illustrated book with their original story inside.

Territorial Acknowledgement

Story Studio Writing Society is located on the traditional territories of the W̱SÁNEĆ and Lkwungen-speaking peoples. We respectfully acknowledge and thank the Lkwungen People, also known as the Songhees and Esquimalt First Nations communities, for allowing us to live, work, learn, play and create on their lands. Through the work we do on the territory, we are accountable to the following communities: Esquimalt, Songhees, SȾÁUTW̱ (Tsawout), W̱JOȽEȽP (Tsartlip), BOḰEĆEN (Pauquachin), MÁLEXEŁ (Malahat), W̱SĺḴEM (Tseycum), T’Sou-ke Nation, Scia’new Nation and Nuu-chah-nulth: Pacheedaht Nations.

We acknowledge that the historical relationship to the land and territories of these peoples continues to this day. As an education based organization, we recognize that we have the responsibility to work towards truth and reconciliation, and to remain open to suggestions, consultations, and partnerships, especially with local Indigenous communities and organizations, on how our organization can continue to work towards reconciliation.
