Guinevere Clark poet and dancer

 

Guinevere grew up in Grimsby, Lincolnshire. Her first poems were published in her teenage years. She has since been featured regularly in the small poetry presses and had her first poetry collection published by Bluechrome Press in 2006.

Guinevere trained as a nurse at Charing Cross Hospital, writing poetry throughout. After qualifying, and working in London she went to Manchester Metropolitan University to further her interest and skill in creative writing and the performing arts. She graduated with a First Class Honours BA degree in Drama, Live Arts and Creative Writing.

After a spell of University aftershock, Guinevere moved to Pembrokeshire where she returned to nursing until chronic back pain forced her to leave the clinical setting. She then started to turn her hobby of belly dancing into a physical therapy, which took off as her new career. She wrote, co-produced and designed 'The Belly Dancer's Treasure Pack', an illustrated guidance book and empowering card set, launched in 2011. She now runs belly dance classes, courses and performs.

Guinevere now lives in Swansea. She has completed a Master of Arts Degree in Creative Writing at the University of Wales, Trinity St David's. She continues to write poertry and on the subject of Belly Dance and facilitates Creative Writing and Dance with the Arts Care community arts organisation.

'Fresh Fruit and Screams' is her first published book of poetry and she is now writing a second collection, 'Egg-Timed Lives'. She is also developing a new illustrated card set based on the theme of pregnancy and birth.

Guinevere is open to commercial writing comissions. If you are interested in publishing her writing or contributing visual art to her current pilot card set project please contact Guinevere
