Connecting a passionate group of local authors with other inspired writers to further build Rochester's creative community


Until we meet again...

Stay positive.

Be creative.

Dream big.

Writers Unite!


If you're spending some of your free time with your fingers on the keyboard writing the next best seller, a few RWL local authors are offering to read and edit your work to keep you headed in the right direction. There's no need to be on this journey alone. Writers must unite!


Contact us, and we'll send you instructions on how to upload your file to our  File Share. 

We have lots of writing prompts on our blog if you need something to help you get started!

The Kody Burkoff Mystery Series:

Crossing Carol

Justice for Julia

Missing Maggie

Jennifer L. Davidson is the creator of Rochester Writing Lab for the sole purpose of providing opportunity for those creative types who want to delve deeper into the literary arts.


She has written three books in the Kody Burkoff Mystery Series and is hard at work on her fourth stand-alone novel. She enjoys writing, reading, and sharing with others all that she’s learned while climbing, crawling, and skipping along the winding, and sometimes treacherous, path to becoming an author.
