Our Response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Outbreak

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.

In-School Programming & Field Trips


For more than 30 years, Just Buffalo Literary Center has sent poets, writers, and performers into the schools to excite students and teachers in the practice and exploration of writing. Each writing program is custom-designed in collaboration with classroom teachers and administrators to focus on student needs. We create the space and flexibility so students can develop their creative and critical abilities with language—to explore their own creativity and become more insightful thinkers.

Writer Residency


Professional writers join students in the classroom for custom-designed, theme-based writer residencies, complementing and supporting the school curriculum.



Foster a love of the written word from the inside out by learning how to make a book, from book binding to printing techniques.
