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.’
