Clare Best

Welcome, and thank you for visiting my website.

I have always lived closely with words. I have been a bookbinder, a bookseller and an editor.

I am the author of Treasure Ground  (HappenStance 2009),  Excisions (Waterloo Press 2011) and Breastless (Pighog 2011).

My poems have appeared in The Rialto, Resurgence, Agenda, Poetry News, The London Magazine, Magma and The Warwick Review amongst other publications.

I have facilitated creative writing in a variety of settings. I led the ‘Tools for Writing’ workshops for life prisoners at HMP Shepton Mallet (Outside In project, 2004) and I was writer in residence at Woodlands Organic Farm from 2006 to 2008.

I teach creative writing at Brighton University and the Open University.

I live in Lewes, Sussex.
