CLARE WIGFALL has lived in London, Berkeley, Prague, Edinburgh, and presently Berlin. Her debut short story collection THE LOUDEST SOUND AND NOTHING (Faber & Faber) was published in 2007 to critical acclaim, described by the Guardian as ‘energisingly, awe-inspiringly, intimidatingly good’.
The following year she won the BBC National Short Story Award and was later nominated by William Trevor for an E.M. Forster Award. She has published in Prospect, the Dublin Review, New Writing 10, and A Public Space, and has written for BBC Radio and NPR Berlin. She holds an MA from the University of East Anglia’s prestigious creative writing programme where she was awarded the Curtis Brown Prize.
Clare has taught writing workshops all over Europe, including for the Arvon Foundation, the Cork International Short Story Festival, and the BBC at the Fringe; she is approachable, generous with her experience, and her teaching has an energy that never fails to inspire her students. http://www.faber.co.uk/catalog/author/clare-wigfall
