Clare Fisher


Creative Writing Teaching Fellow



I am a novelist and short story writer. My debut novel, All the Good Things (Viking, 2017) won a Betty Trask Award. My short story collection, How the Light Gets In (Influx Press, 2018) was longlisted for the Dylan Thomas Prize and the Edgehill Short Story Prize. I am currently working on my second novel and a practice-based AHRC-funded PhD in Creative Writing at the University of Leeds which investigates experimentation with failure in contemporary women's writing. I convene module ESH6043 - Creative Writing: Prose. 

Specialisms: Creative Writing, The Short Story, Queer Theory, Experimental Writing, Women's Writing
