Welcome to Leeds Writers and Poets
Leeds Writers and Poets was founded in May 2012 to provide a forum for aspiring writers and poets to gain quality feedback from other people with similar interests.
We are a small group of writers and poets who get together a couple of times a month to give feedback on each other's writing, take part in workshops and generally share the experience of writing.
We have members of all levels, from those who are just starting out to people with several novels under their belt.
We have an ethos of inclusion and support, and welcome writers and poets of all levels of ability – the only pre-requisite is a positive attitude and willingness to give as well as take.
This sounds interesting, although I don't properly understand what they're asking for.

Andrey Pissantchev: As I mentioned to some of you, I managed to sell "Power Juice!" for pro rates. It's just come out, Factor Four Magazine, Issue 5. Check it out! http://factorfourmag.com/

Richard: 5 days left to enter this, if anyone is interested. The article is from an Irish paper but as far as I can see it's a UK thing.

Adam Burton: Here’s a final push for anthology submissions. We’re at 7 pieces but would be great if we could get a few more?
If you’ve got any pieces that you might want to consider putting in but you’re unsure about the theme send me a message as the theme is flexibly vague when thought about hard enough so I’m sure we could find an angle.
firstname.lastname@example.org for any submissions.

Andrey Pissantchev: Northern Short Story festival anyone? http://bigbookend.co.uk/nssf/northern-short-story-festival-programme-announced/
That flash fiction workshop on June 1st looks pretty good.

This blog is wonderful. Very much looking forward to the session where I spend two hours trying to figure out the meaning of a piece only to find out it was generated by a neural network.

Adam Wolstenholme: Did anything happen with the idea of the writers' retreat weekend?

Kat: Sent out the call for submissions (thanks Andrey - perhaps you should be in charge of that...) Sadly I can't make the meeting this week because I'm going on a yoga retreat in Nepal (sorry not sorry!)
