We also occasionally offer workshops and in-school editing sessions on an as-requested basis.. 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.. It takes all kinds of talented, big-hearted volunteers to run a place like 826michigan.. Volunteers who seem to dream in Awesome Workshop Ideas, others who never fail to help with an event or who can stuff their WEIGHT in mailing materials.. Please, bring your skills to our table!..

What does your character like to do on weekends? What are his/her friends like? What is his/her favorite board game? Marine mammal? What is his/her best kept secret? Since the main character is often the centerpiece of a story (either as the narrator or as the focal point of the action), the audience has to be interested in that character to want to read more of the story.. But the character doesn’t have to be nice in fact, the description of the character doesn’t need to be positive at all!
