Youth Writing Workshops & Events

Tuesdays & Thursdays | 4:30 p.m.–6:00 p.m.

All workshops are currently VIRTUAL, aimed at young writers aged 12–18, and limited to 8 participants.

*ACCESSIBILITY NOTE: Writers are welcome to participate with OR without video and audio during any of our virtual sessions. If you have any questions/issues accessing any of these opportunities, please let us know and we will work with you to make sure you can participate.

Virtual Writing Feedback: No ZOOM Required

JBWC staff and volunteers would love to read what you’ve been writing.

We can provide feedback, help you brainstorm/troubleshoot, or connect you with writing resources and publishing opportunities. Generally, we offer this through email and Google docs, but we are happy to adjust to fit your needs. To get started, email the JBWC Coordinator Robin Jordan at rjordan@justbuffalo.org.
