About

I’m Claire – author, journalist, copy editor, walker and talker.

With a particular interest in travel and food, and a curiosity about human nature, my writing has been published in Westjet, Delicious, ELLE, Lodestars Anthology, Australian Women’s Weekly, Jamie Oliver, Fabulous, Roadtrippers, and Trek & Mountain, and the Lodestars Anthology book of travel essays, Pathways.

My memoir Things I Learned From Falling is a story of modern-day fear and loneliness, told through the experience of surviving four days seriously injured in the desert.

In 2020 I ran the Travel Writing Workshop for the West Cork Literary Festival, and that same year I gave talks for BLME, Lloyds and OPX Studio.

As an editor I was chief sub at Jamie Oliver’s magazine Jamie for five years. As a freelance I’ve subbed for National Geographic Traveller, National Geographic Food, Courier, Food & Travel and InStyle, while online copyediting clients span the corporate and creative.

I’m always on the look out for interesting writing and editing assignments, so if you’d like to chat about working together, do get in touch.
