Guest Editor Sept/October – Clare Shaw

2018-02-17-16.57.17 (1)

The Editor’s Choice poem for September/October will be chosen by Clare Shaw.

She has three poetry collections from Bloodaxe: Straight Ahead (2006), Head On (2012) and Flood (2018).

She’s a regular tutor with a range of literary organisations – including the Poetry School, the Wordsworth Trust and the Arvon Foundation – delivering creative writing courses, workshops and mentoring sessions in a variety of different settings, with individuals at all levels of ability, confidence and experience. She works with the Royal Literary Fund and the Writing Project, supporting the development of writing skills in academic settings and workplaces. She is also involved in a range of innovative projects with artists and practitioners in other disciplines, including psychology, visual arts and music, and is also a mental health educator. All her work is underpinned by a deep faith in language: words have the power to harm and help us, and powerful language can transform us as individuals, communities and societies.
