Writers groups in Leeds
L has asked if I know of any writers groups in Leeds.
There are quite a few, depending on what you’re after. If you’re semi or retired, the U3A have writing groups amongst there activities. If you’re in the Crossgates (LS15) area, Good Neighbours run a group on Thursday mornings. There’s also a writing group based in Seacroft library (which I go to) who meet on the 3rd Weds afternoon each month.
The central library in the city centre hosts another group who meet on the 3rd Thursday afternoon. Then there’s Leeds Writers Circle, one of the oldest and biggest around. They meet Monday evenings, mostly fortnightly, and also hold workshops on Saturdays every now and then (I’m running one on short stories in May). If any of those are of interest and you’d like more info, just leave another comment.
