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 Writing Center at jbwc@justbuffalo.org.
