A Community of Writers


to provide an engaging, magical, and educational writing environment wherein students can be reminded of and introduced to the creative process and the art of the possible. To promote self-expression and build self-confidence, to develop a voice and self-efficacy around the practice of writing, to help students self-identify as writers and people who enjoy writing, and to increase their sense of belonging to a writing community.


Workshops at 826michigan are designed to:

  • foster creativity
  • strengthen writing skills
  • provide students (ages 6-18) with a forum for executing projects they might not otherwise have the support to undertake
  • generate enthusiasm for writing and learning
  • help students to understand their own writing processes, including revision
  • be playful to the practical
  • engage volunteer writers, artists, educators, and publishing professionals in our community
