I’m Claire – author, journalist, copy editor, hiker, speaker.

I love to explore stories around travel, food, and the human experience, and have written for:
SUITCASE, Sunday Times Travel, ELLE, Woman, Westjet, Delicious, Lodestars Anthology, Australian Women’s Weekly, Jamie Oliver, Malaysia Airlines, Fabulous, Trek & Mountain and Roadtrippers, and for 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 severely 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, OPX Studio and Stanfords Travel Bookshop.

As a copy editor I was chief sub at Jamie Oliver’s magazine Jamie for five years, and freelance subbed for National Geographic Traveller, National Geographic Food, Courier magazine, Food & Travel, and InStyle, with various digital clients spanning corporate and creative.

I’m always on the lookout for interesting writing and editing assignments, so if you’d like to chat about working together, get in touch. For speaking engagements, interviews and any queries regarding Things I Learned From Falling, please contact my fab agent Sarah Williams.
