My name is Clare Holman-Hobbs and I’m a writer, performance poet and actress from the South of England. I am currently working on my first novel, and I write confessional and love poetry. In all aspects of writing, I strive to create poignant, imaginative, thought-provoking pieces. In my performance, I hope to engage my listeners, connect with them on an emotional level, and identify themselves in my poems or in the work I perform. My work has been published in Century 121, The Little Cherry Press and the University of Winchester’s 2013 edition of Vortex. I started writing poetry at the beginning of 2012, and performing in open mic nights and poetry events across Winchester, where I studied BA Creative Writing.
I pride myself on my creativity and always have done so. My parents hand wrote, illustrated and bound children’s stories for me, such as Terry the Seagull who lived on next door’s chimney, and Eric and Erica, the story of two socks that were on the end of my father’s ladder. I grew up in a world where words were celebrated and it was imperative to my development, making me the writer I am today.
