JULY 13, 2021 — Just Buffalo Literary Center selected BCAT youth artist, Millie to serve as a youth fellow with the organization.
The Just Buffalo Writing Center Youth Fellowship offers a motivated young writer the opportunity to develop their craft and explore professional avenues within the literary arts.
Millie will work with a mentor, be encouraged to develop her unique voice as a creative writer and thinker, and present a creative writing project to be completed over the course of the summer fellowship. The fellowship includes a $1,200 stipend.
The fellowship takes place during the months of July and August 2021. This year, the youth fellowship will be conducted entirely online.
Just Buffalo Literary Center’s mission is to create and strengthen communities through the literary arts. And for more than 40 years, they have brought the world’s greatest writers to Buffalo, hosted poetry events and readings, and supported the development of young writers.
They believe in the love of reading, the art of writing, and the power of the literary arts to transform individual lives and communities.
