Since 1982, Just Buffalo has led the way for literary arts education in Western New York. 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, as well as community centers throughout Western New York. Each of our creative writing programs is custom-designed in partnership with teachers and administrators. We also offer professional development opportunities for teachers.
