Clare Best

Mentoring for writing

I’m always ready to discuss how best to support a writer who is starting out, or who may have reached a sticking point, or who wants to try a new direction. Poetry or prose. Tailor-made mentoring to suit individual needs.

Some comments from students and mentees:

‘Clare manages to combine being extremely talented and utterly inspirational with being completely approachable and down-to-earth.’

‘Excellent feedback… the comments always boosted my confidence and made me feel good about the work, while pointing clearly to areas for improvement - a difficult balance to achieve.’

‘She is a professional writer, with experience of being a professional editor, which brings a depth of experience to the learning.’

‘Precise and empathic, with a good sense of humour, and a wonderful ear for truth and authenticity, Clare is open and non-judgmental, a true enabler. She is methodical and kind, crystal clear and compassionate, intelligent and friendly.’

‘The online support was fantastic.’

‘Clare is BRILLIANT. She has helped my development as a writer on a deep and fundamental level.’
