Drop-in Writing

Drop-in Writing is a perfect way to hone skills and do creative work outside the school setting. We welcome all students to 826michigan’s Drop-in Writing at our headquarters in Ann Arbor and libraries in Ypsilanti and Detroit. At Drop-in Writing, we experiment with writing prompts, get constructive feedback on poems, learn new techniques, discuss creative writing with other students, and have plenty of opportunities for students to publish, record, and perform their work!



Drop-in Writing for Wee-bots (Click here to register!)

Ages: 5-10
Wednesdays, 6-7pm
Oct 6, 2021-Dec 8, 2021 (No session on November 24)

A weekly storytime program—join whenever you can make it!—through which early writers read a story together and practice one aspect of the author’s work in our own writing.

826michigan offers a wide range of writing workshops designed to foster creativity, strengthen writing skills, and provide students with a forum for executing creative projects they might not otherwise have the support to undertake. Workshops are structured around 826michigan’s core values of writing as a means to understand, to connect, and to use power to build a better world. All workshops are designed and taught by 826michigan staff, volunteer writers, artists, educators, and publishing professionals in our community, and can be adapted for various age-levels, group sizes, number of sessions, and length of sessions.
