Creative Writing in the Schools

Just Buffalo Literary Center has been putting professional writers in the schools for 35 years. One of Just Buffalo’s greatest strengths is our ability to reach students of all ages and abilities—gifted and talented, at-risk or special needs—and we’re proud to work with public, private, Catholic and charter schools. Each of our Writer Residencies is custom-designed in partnership with teachers and administrators.

Recognized by a New York State Governor’s Arts Award and a Buffalo Alliance for Education Award
