A graduate of the prestigious UEA Masters Programme, Clare has taught writing workshops all over Europe, including for the Arvon Foundation and the BBC; she is approachable, generous with her experience, and her teaching has an energy that never fails to inspire her students. Suitable for advanced writers to total beginners, this special workshop series guarantees to inspire. It also offers an unbeatable opportunity to work with an author described as “an assured literary conjuror” (The Guardian) and the author of tales “sorrowful, disturbing and darkly beautiful” (London Review of Books). Her debut story collection The Loudest Sound and Nothing was published by Faber and Faber to critical acclaim in 2007 and the following year its opening story was given the BBC National Short Award. She is currently working on a new collection of stories and is under commission following that to write a novel set in early 20th century British Malaya.
