Speed Dating for Writers

Speed Dating for Writers
Dates and times

30 Jan 2019 6pm

Show Map


3 Millennium Square, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS2 3AD

Are you a writer based in or around Leeds who wants to meet other writers? Want to get the new year off to a creative start? Looking for writers who write in a similar style or genre to exchange work and become critique partners?

This is a chance to get together, make connections, meet a bunch of writers from the region and share experiences on all things writing. Using the format of ‘speed dating’ or speed networking, you’ll get chance to chat one to one to other writers, in a relaxed format that will hopefully be fun! There’ll be some suggested questions to get us going, then we’ll convene in a wider group to share ideas and perspectives.

Whether you’re an experienced writer or just starting out, join us in the bar at Carriageworks Theatre on Wednesday 30 January 2019.

Writers of all styles and genres are welcome (fiction, non-fiction, poetry and more).

The event is free but please register here. Refreshments can be purchased at the bar.

Organised by the Northern Short Story Festival in conjunction with Carriageworks Theatre, and is supported by Arts@Leeds and Leeds City Council. Facilitated by Rachel Connor, writer and Course Director at Leeds Beckett University.
