Calling All Storytellers: An Invitation for Students to Write a Story for a Journey Beyond the Earth!

Dear Students,

Get ready to embark on an extraordinary adventure that transcends the bounds of our planet! STORIES of Space, in collaboration with Maritime Launch Services, the operators of Canada's first commercial spaceport, invites YOU to participate in an unparalleled storytelling mission, STORIES Mission 03. This initiative is your chance to have your story soar into the skies aboard a suborbital launch vehicle that will experience accelerations beyond 30 G, from Spaceport Nova Scotia.

Why Your Story Matters

Your imagination holds the power to explore universes, envisage futures, and dream up inventions that could one day become reality. STORIES Mission 03 is not just about launching stories into space; it's about demonstrating how creativity and narrative can inspire advancements in space exploration and STEM fields. It's a testament to the belief that a story can spark curiosity, drive innovation, and even lead someone to pursue a career in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics.

We're Looking For:

Creativity: Stories that capture the imagination, whether they're about space exploration, the wonders of the universe, or an invention.

Inclusivity: We welcome all diverse voices from across Canada and Indigenous Nations, ensuring stories represent a rich tapestry of culture, Canadian identity and imagination.

Participation: Submissions from students of all ages, individually or as part of a group project. Whether you're a budding writer in elementary school or a high school student with a passion for space, your story has a place in this mission.

How to Submit Your Story

Craft your story, letting your imagination lead the way. Once you're ready to share it with the world—and potentially the universe—submit it through the STORIES of Space website by the deadline of May 31, 2024.

Join the Mission

Your participation goes beyond storytelling (literally!); it's an opportunity to be part of a historic moment in space exploration and to connect with the skies in a deeply personal way. Your story could inspire the next generation of explorers, scientists, and dreamers.

We can't wait to read your stories and send them on a journey beyond the stars. 

Dream big, write with curiosity, and reach for the stars!
