In the back of a storefront with Detroit Robot Factory written across the marquee you don’t expect to come across a fully supplied and staffed writing workshop. Yet right across the road from Eastern Market sits this little gem where students can go to set loose their imagination. There, they create wonderful stories with each other while gaining new writing and learning skills, only costing them time and participation. This location as well as a sister store in Ann Arbor house 826 Michigan, a nonprofit that dedicates itself to furthering a child’s love of reading and writing.
Whether a student needs help with homework, wants to write for fun, or would like to expand their creative writing skills, the 826 Michigan writing labs are great places to work one on one or in groups to accomplish these goals.
Next time you’re in downtown Ann Arbor or by Eastern Market, take a look inside the Liberty Street Robot Supply & Repair or the Detroit Robot Factory to check out some of the fun robot gear, and don’t forget to pick up one of the many published works to see how brilliant a young mind can be.
