Welcome to Leeds Writers and Poets!

We're actively seeking new members!

Whether you're new to writing, or have years of experience under your belt, we'd love to hear from you and you would be very welcome to come along and visit as a guest, to see what we're all about.

We're a friendly bunch of poets, short story writers, novelists and everything in between.

We meet twice a month - once online and once in person, and we do a range of critique sessions, workshops, write-ins and social events.

So, if you think you'd like to come along to find motivation, support and resources to help you improve as a writer, please email us at to find out when we're next meeting!

Thanks for subscribing!

What we get up to



The heart of our group is critique sessions. These are bi-monthly meetings where we read each other's work and give constructive feedback.



We run a Christmas Party and a Summer Social, with good food, drink, poetry reading and lots of bad puns. We also organise write-ins at the library and nights out for local literary events.



We run an annual members-only short story competition, which is judged by our members. Certificates are presented to the winners at the Christmas Party.



Every year we produce an anthology of our members' work. This is professionaly printed, and entered into the National Association of Writers Groups competition.
