Clare Howdle

Clare Howdle is a writer and editor who lives by the sea. She was longlisted for the 2021 Lucy Cavendish Fiction Prize, received honourable mention in the 2020 Masters Review Short Story Award, won the 2019 Word Factory apprenticeship and has had work listed and published with Grindstone Literary, Bath Short Story Award, Popshot magazine, Litro and more. She is currently working on her first novel, set in Cornwall and colonial Zimbabwe.

When she’s not writing fiction, Clare runs a content studio through which she has interviewed Hollywood directors, tech giants, disruptive start-ups and all sorts in between. From shipwrecks to supercomputers, burlesque to nitrate film if there’s a story, she’s eager to tell it.

When she’s not writing, she spends as much time in salt water as possible.
