Launch your Creative Writing career at Leeds Trinity University

Welcome to the inspiring and supportive writing community at Leeds Trinity University. Whether you are an emerging or established writer, or somewhere in between, our community can help throughout your writing journey.

To take your writing to the next level, you need to immerse yourself in writing. This means developing a regular writing practice, reading widely and voraciously, and taking part in writing events – whether that's as a spectator or performer.

What's on?


Leeds Trinity anthology

We produce an annual themed anthology in partnership with award-winning Indigo Dreams Publishing. Our 2018 anthology, Mythologies, is available here.

For a chance to be published in the 2019 anthology​, writers are encouraged to submit their work around the theme of mystery which can relate to ghosts, crimes, misty moors, missing socks and anything in-between. Editors Jasmin Williams and Rosi Gemmell are looking for a maximum of two short stories (up to 650 words) or three poems (up to 36 lines, max 60 characters per line). Entrants must have a connection to Leeds Trinity. Submit your entries by email before 31 March 2019.

Since our MA was established in 2015, our alumni have racked up 23 single-author publications between them – and counting. These have ranged from anthologies and poetry collections, to multi-book publishing deals.

They perform and compere at writing events and festivals and their work has received critical acclaim, featuring on shortlists such as The Saboteur Awards. And they're also able to call writing their profession, working as creative writing teachers, workshop leaders and copywriters.
