From basics to bylines, we'd like to see you succeed!
You don't have to travel far to meet up with other writers. Join our network of writers at either one or both of the Basics2Bylines Writers' Groups. Whether you've been published before or not, you'll be inspired to write and submit your work for publication. The B2B Writers' Groups are held at two locations for your convenience.
Basics2Bylines - Helping WNY Writers Get Into Print is a literary network open to all writers who wish to share their written work for feedback and explore the publishing process in an ongoing group format.
One of the main objectives of this literary network is to help writers connect, by listing upcoming literary events and highlighting the accomplishments of our fellow writers, as well as sharing related on-line links that we feel will enhance the overall effectiveness of our fellow writers.

After attending and then assisting with a series of writing workshops, Lynne and Edie found that they enjoyed getting together with other writers and hearing their works, as well as sharing their own. It seemed that a writer's group needed to be formed in the area, so together they started two partner writers' groups called, "Basics 2 Bylines," offering them at two locations in the Buffalo area. They hope to provide a network for writers, as well as offer tips and advice on getting published.
