Kate Clanchy

Kate Clanchy has been working as a state school teacher since she was twenty, a writer since she was thirty, and as a broadcaster and writer for radio since she was forty. Now she is fifty, and We Are Writing a Poem about Home brings together all these strands of her work in a joyous collaboration with radio producer Jonquil Panting and the staff and students of Oxford Spires Academy where she has been Writer in Residence, supported by First Story and Oxford Brookes University, for seven years. Kate is married to the writer Matthew Reynolds, and their three children attend OSA.
