CLAIRE HAMILTON — CREATIVE WRITINGThe pen is mightier than the sword

About Claire Hamilton


Claire had a joint degree in Drama and English from Bristol University and an MA in English Literature. She wrote a range of both fiction and non-fiction works including several Teach Yourself books, a Day Book and historical books on ancient and mediaeval traditions. In particular she wrote about, and creatively rewrote, tales from mythology, and saw myth as a powerful source of character, archetype and symbol..

Claire was published by Hodder, Random House, and Barnes & Noble (USA), amongst others. Formerly Creative Writing Tutor at The Royal Forest of Dean College, Claire ran classes and Writing Day workshops in The Forest of Dean and Wye Valley. Under her guidance and encouragement, her students produced two books, both now on sale in local shops and bookshops, including WH Smith, Tesco and Waterstones. See Students’ Books.
