September Workshops at the Lyceum

September 15, 18, 22, 25 and 29
12:30 PM to 3:30 PM
Ages: 5 to 12
Cost: $40 per session + GST

Join us at the Lyceum each Monday and Thursday in September to celebrate the beauty of words. Each day, we’ll share a story about a famous poet, take a look at some of their poems, and find in them inspiration for some poems of our own.  We’ll take these pieces through the editing process, and present them using them a variety of artistic techniques. Students are welcome to join us for as many days as they like - one day, two days, or all five.

An ability to be playful with words is the foundation for good writing, and writing poetry is a great way to practice this essential skill. The Lyceum’s staff of talented writers and educators will be on hand to ensure that every young writer, no matter where they are on their writing journey, experiences the satisfaction of filling a page with the unique and beautiful way they see the world.

** Please note: this class will only go forward if the teacher’s strike is still in effect.

Mary Novik


October 2, 2014

7:00 PM

Mary Novik’s debut novel, Conceit, was chosen as a Book of the Year by The Globe and Mail and named by Canada Reads as one of the Top 40 Essential Canadian Novels of the Decade.

Her second novel, Muse, is a sweeping historical epic that expertly evokes the Renaissance.  It tells the story of the mysterious woman who was the inspiration behind Petrarch’s sublime love poetry.

Mosaic Memory Games

Now available at the Lyceum, our very own Mosaic Memory Card game - a fun and vibrant way to test you memory skills! There are four different sets to collect - combine them all to make a GIANT memory game!

At $5 per set they're a unique small gift - a perfect little present!


As many of our fabulous summer volunteers head off on well earned holidays, we embark on our search for more amazing people, adults and teens, to support our Summer Programs.
