Clare Howdle

Clare Howdle lives in Falmouth, Cornwall, where she runs a content agency – writing for national and international brands and publications about everything from how machine learning will enable the fifth wave of computing, to the cultural significance of the colour yellow. Her short stories have been published in The Sunday Times and The Cornish Short Stories Anthology (History Press, 2018) and longlisted for the Bath Short Story Award (2019) and the Mslexia short story competition (2018). She’s performed her work at Port Eliot Festival, the Eden Sessions and was invited to judge a slam poetry competition with no knowledge of slam poetry. She’s endlessly baffled by the dynamics of human relationships and her writing explores the way experiences, emotions and events intersect to make us who we are. She’s supposed to be working on her first novel. Not checking the surf report.

Clare’s Word Factory Apprenticeship is also supported by Literature Works, the south-west regional writing development agency.
