What is Story Planet?
Story Planet inspires kids to develop their unique voice & to make it powerful using the written word, visual arts & digital media.
Story Planet recently opened a new writing centre on Bloor Street west between Dovercourt and Landsdowne. This dynamic Space gives kids and youth the opportunity to hang out and learn from some of Canada’s finest writers, artists and digital storymakers. There’s also an exciting shop where you can get everything for the traveling alien including some tantalizing reading!
This new, innovative centre for kids and youth is inspired by two successfully operating models, Dave Egger’s 826 National in San Francisco (which oversees eight centres in the US) and Roddy Doyle’s, Fighting Words in Dublin, Ireland. Both of these organizations are involved in supporting Story Planet through ongoing mentorship, consultation and the sharing of resources.
