Each year, Just Buffalo 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. Here are the winners.
