I am a poet straying into Science territory, a Science teacher gone to The Other Side, an educator, facilitor, and creative agitator. 


You'll generally find me doing interesting and exciting things in that bit of the Venn diagram (remember them?) where Science, Learning and Poetry overlap.

Helen Clare is a freelance writer and facilitator working on a portfolio of  projects which involve science, writing, creativity,  and learning. They have included a residency at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester, Passing Down, which was a collaboration with academics, the community and an artist to create a piece of word based textile art responding to people’s ideas about inheritance, and supporting the Leonardo Effect, a NESTA funded project to explore teaching science and art synchronously.

Helen’s poetry collection Mollusc was published by Comma press in 1994.  Her poems have also appeared in magazines including The North, The Rialto, Ambit and The Manhattan Review and have won prizes in the Arvon and London Writers Competitions. 

She is a Creative Agent for Creative Partnerships and manages the Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) strand for the Centre for Urban Education.
