This year Bi’an will hold four open events in four cities plus a five day Arvon residential writing course. Whether you write fiction, life-writing, poetry or script, and even if you don’t know what you want to write – yet – we hope you’ll find a Bi’an event that’s relevant and accessible to you and your writing journey.


Poet, Jennifer Wong, novelist, Yan Ge, and playwright, Simon Ly, will discuss why we need a UK Chinese Writers’ Network, and lead practical writing workshops in the stunning setting of The Leeds Library, Britain’s oldest surviving subscription library, established 1768.

Participants will be able to choose between workshops in writing poetry, fiction or script.

Ticket price includes dim sum lunch and Launch cake.
