People can purchase single tickets or packages of three or six sessions.

Story Planet has an inclusivity policy that strives to make workshops and programs available to all who wish to participate. For those who can offer more than the ticket price, your generosity will help those who are not able to cover the full cost of the sessions.

All proceeds from this workshop series will benefit Story Planet’s free writing and arts programming for children and youth.
