Clare Shaw is described by Carol Ann Duffy as 'probably the best, most electrifying, new young reader on the circuit'. Clare grew up in Burnley, spent ten years in Liverpool and now lives in West Yorkshire with her partner, her daughter and various geriatric cats. Her first poetry collection, Straight Ahead, was published by Bloodaxe in 2006. She is widely known for her work and publications around women's mental health, and is co-director in a self-harm training partnership.
