Clare Carlin


I’m a writer of fiction and poetry, and a journalist. My novel Excursions was shortlisted for The Australian/Vogel’s Literary Award (2012), and won the FAW Jim Hamilton Award (2008). My writing has been supported by Varuna, Express Media, and La Muse. From 2009-17 I was co-judge of the Jim Hamilton Award. I’ve worked as a writer and copy editor for a diverse range of publications and media producers in Australia and the UK across fashion, news, and arts.



I’m the editor of Pieced Work, an online arts publication about writing and making.
