About Leeds Writers and Poets

Leeds Writers and Poets was founded in 2012 by Katja Kaine, who wanted to create a space for writers which was constructive, encouraging and inclusive.


Our members include everyone from completely new writers to published authors who have won competitions and awards.

Some of our members have had work published in print anthologies, online magazines and several have had short stories broadcast on BBC Leeds.
