As a precaution to help limit the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) and care for our community, Just Buffalo Literary Center has postponed a number of events, and we will follow the guidance of Buffalo Public Schools in terms of Just Buffalo Writing Center programming.
Scroll down for our ongoing response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, including updates for programming and other necessary changes as they occur.

Just Buffalo Writing Center will be closed until further notice. The Writing Center is a safe, welcoming place for young writers, so the decision to close is especially difficult. We’re thinking of ways we can engage JBWC writers (and the rest of our community!) and continue to foster creative acts during this time through social media and our e-newsletter, so we hope you’ll stay connected with us there.
We’ve been having tough conversations in the last week about how to best serve our community through the development of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19—how to help people stay healthy, protect those most vulnerable, and prevent the spread of the virus. At this critical moment, Just Buffalo Literary Center affirms our commitment to care deeply and thoughtfully for our audiences, artists, staff, volunteers, colleagues, and communities.
At this time, following guidance from Governor Cuomo as well as our own concern for community safety, the following events have been postponed:
We are working to reschedule these events, and will update ticket holders and the general public as soon as we can.
Just Buffalo Writing Center will follow the guidance of Buffalo Public Schools in terms of future cancellations. Participants currently enrolled in an adult writing workshop scheduled for March and/or April will receive status updates via email as they become available.
During this time of fear and uncertainty, we continue to be guided by the power of the literary arts to strengthen communities and provide hope in the face of difficulty. Thank you for your understanding as we navigate this together.
