We are committed to making sure that our students have an outlet for the wonderful material they produce. To this end, we help them publish and distribute their work, be it in their own zine, in a specially produced book, or in another format. Additionally, we publish two professionally bound books each year – the 826michigan OMNIBUS, our annual student journal, and an in-school publication tied to one of our In-school Residencies – and a number of smaller chapbooks, zines, catalogs, and more. Most of our publications are available for sale in our store, the Liberty Street Robot Supply & Repair.


We are thrilled to invite you to the release of the OMNIBUS VIII, our annual anthology of the very best student writing from across our programs over the past school year. The release will be on Saturday, November 5 from 2-3:30pm and be held at the Whittaker Rd. Branch This celebration will feature student readers, a dramatic unveiling, autographs, author photos, an open mic, refreshments, and more.

Come join us and experience the joy of a student seeing their name in print for the first (or second or fifth) time! We love building a large and supportive audience for these special events.

We believe that having one’s work published is a transformative experience. By publishing student writing, 826michigan ensures that students build confidence in their skills and have a unique outlet for expression. We publish dozens of chapbooks and two major, professionally-bound books per year: one as the result of an in-school residency and one volume of the annual OMNIBUS, an anthology of the best of the best student writing from the year prior. All of our publications are designed with the utmost care and attention to style and detail, because we want students to know how seriously we take their writing.
