At Just Buffalo Literary Center we believe in the love of reading, the art of writing and the power of the literary arts to change individual lives and communities. With your donation, you will join us in putting this vision into action.
If you believe that books change lives, reading is essential to democracy, and that creative writing unlocks our imaginations and gives us the tools to be free thinkers and innovators, help us bring together, engage and inspire all of WNY’s readers, writers and dreamers!
With your generous gift to Just Buffalo Literary Center, you help write the next chapter!
