Tell us your story

What’s the purpose of One World Leeds?

We aim to give a voice to the voiceless; tackle prejudice and promote a positive understanding, particularly on asylum and refugee issues.

What kind of things are we looking for?

  • Anecdotes and short stories
  • Personal stories and experience
  • Poems
  • Photographs and artwork
  • Graphics and illustrations
  • Audio clips
  • Short videos
  • Events and notices
  • Book and event reviews
  • Comment and analysis
  • Reports on current issues
  • Interviews with people
  • Cultural reviews and criticism

Will I definitely get published?

If it’s line with what we stand for, probably. If we don’t think it’s ready to publish – we’ll let you know why and give you some pointers. To help you pitch your contribution correctly, here’s a list of dos and don’ts


  • Make sure there is a connection to Leeds
  • Be respectful
  • Be original
  • Be thoughtful
  • Be accessible
  • Use footnotes or hyperlinks
  • Credit other people
  • Include a one line bio that explains who you are


  • Be rude or offensive
  • Be boring
  • Use jargon
  • Go on – anything between 50 and 350 words is about right. If you want to write anything longer it’s probably worth emailing us first.
  • Use other people’s photos
  • Get personal about people you disagree with
