Leeds Trinity University has launched a series of workshops and writing days to help aspiring and established writers develop their writing and work towards completing a novel, poetry or short story collection.
The series, which is called Write through the Winter, will lead up to the Leeds Trinity University Writers' Festival on Wednesday 13 March.
The dialogue and place workshop is the second in the series, and will be delivered by young-adult fiction writer Liz Flanagan.
The workshop includes a morning workshop 10.00am to 1.00pm, and a Space to Write session from 2.00 to 4.00pm where you will have the opportunity to put the skills from the workshop into practice, focusing on your own work.
As part of the series of workshops, we are hoping writers will work towards producing a novel, poetry or short story collection.
