Clare has used her extensive writing, teaching and mentoring experience to help many writers achieve their goals of improvement, exposure, and publication.  As part of her longstanding commitment to fostering writers of talent and commitment, Clare is currently undertaking a limited number of mentoring, coaching and literary  consultancy engagements.  If you are a writer of proven commitment, who is keen to see your work develop, then a one-off consultancy report, or a mentoring or coaching relationship, could be the vital next step in your writing career.
