Just Buffalo Literary Center affirms our commitment to anti-racism in our mission of strengthening communities through literature, and we affirm our ongoing support of the fight for the safety and well-being of Black lives everywhere.
We join our community in demanding justice for the lives lost to murder by police—including in our home city of Buffalo. We also recognize that racial violence is not limited to police brutality; but rather, the entire structure of this country has been built on systems of institutionalized racism which affect every aspect of life.
The Just Buffalo Writing Center Youth Fellowship offers a motivated young writer the opportunity to develop their craft and explore professional avenues within the literary arts.
The selected fellow will work with a mentor, be encouraged to develop their unique voice as a creative writer and thinker, and present a creative writing project to be completed over the course of the summer fellowship. The fellowship includes a $1,200 stipend.
Deadline for Application: June 30, 2020
We are celebrating the literary arts in Buffalo with poems under your feet. Look for spray-chalked poetry on sidewalks all over the city — we’re adding new poems every week during this time apart.
We’re grateful for your patience and support as we navigate this difficult time and plan—as best we can—for the future.
