#UrbiWrite – The Urban Writing Retreat For You!

The Northern Short Story Festival and Leeds Big Bookend, in partnership with the Carriageworks Theatre, and supported by Arts@Leeds and Leeds City Council, bring you #UrbiWrite.

Register here.

What’s it all about?

Need a quiet space to write? Time away from home/the kids/caring? Perhaps you need a writing retreat, but haven’t got the time or money to get away?

#UrbiWrite is perhaps what you are looking for. We provide a quiet space where you can work on any written project, whether that’s a short story, a novel, poetry, play, or an essay. It’s Pay What You Feel and it’s right here in Leeds. It’s on Saturday 18 August from 10.00-3.00pm, at the Carriageworks Theatre.  Come for all 5 hours or for part of the time, it’s up to you. There’s an opportunity to share your work and socialise in the bar afterwards from 3.00-4.00pm.

Please note that #UrbiWrite is not a tutored workshop. It is time and space for you to write. Anybody can come along, regardless of what you’re working on, or where you are in your career. Please come along ready to work. All you need is your laptop or notebook, and your project to work on. Tea and coffee will be provided but you will need to bring your own lunch.

Saturday 18 August, 10.00-3.00pm (writing retreat) with 3.00-4.00pm time to share work and socialise in the bar afterwards at the Carriageworks Theatre, Leeds. Pay What You Feel on the day but please register your attendance here. Any enquiries please email us at northernshortstoryfestival@gmail.com. If you can’t make this #UrbiWrite, join us on Saturday 27 October at the Leeds Ukrainian Community Centre for our next one. Full details here.
