Let your imagination run wild and create the most fantastic story, novel, poem, or script you’ve ever dreamed of! Supported by the Greater Victoria Public Library, this free 8-week summer program is designed to help launch your writing into the stratosphere! 

Choose to write as much or as little as you want – a single scene, or entire chapters. Set your own writing goal to reach during your summer in our online ‘writer’s room,’ where you’ll get weekly advice and support from Story Studio staff, and visiting local authors and illustrators, as you write.

Open to youth aged 12-18 in Victoria, BC
Dates: July 4 – August 26 Location: Online Registration Deadline: July 3 Course Fee: FREE to GVPL card holders – Limited spaces!

What if the West Coast was a place of fantasy and fiction? Interested in redrawing the map of our island homes – and retelling their story?

Participants in Imaginary Islands will collaborate with other young writers, and work with local authors and illustrators to write stories set in this new shared world. 

The result? An illustrated anthology – with your story – that explores the Imaginary Islands!
