Mittenfest VI, an annual performance of five nights of local music, was a great success and a lot of fun for the adults. But it's the kids who visit 826michigan that will reap the rewards as Mittenfest raised $21,290 to assist with creative writing programming and tutoring for students ages six to 18. This year 826michigan will spread the love to Ypsilanti with one of the organization's largest undertakings to date, an afterschool tutoring program to be provided at no cost to students who attend at least one session per week from 3:30-5:30pm. Eastern Michigan University students will partner with participants to teach a series of writing lessons on the subject of "Past, Present, Future." Collected essays will be published in a professional-quality book in the spring of 2012.
