LS13: A New Generation of Leeds Writers

LS13 CoverIn 2013, The Big Bookend in association with Dead Ink launched its search for 20 of the best writers under the age of 40 in Leeds . LS13 was about uncovering a new generation of Leeds Writers.

The selection is diverse – from sea shanties about Clarence Dock to science fiction, social realism, concrete poetry, magic realism, flash fiction, a crime novel, rocket builders, dreamers, monsters and ice men – these are stories from Leeds, in Leeds and outside of Leeds, from the pens and imaginations of our ‘20 under 40’.
