My name is Laura Marie Clark. I have a First Class Honours degree in History and I will soon begin a very successful Master’s. After graduating in 2013, I spent 10 months working as an ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. I am currently living in the UK and working as a housekeeper, as well as keeping myself busy with my writing.
I have been writing for many years, inspired in one English class as a young teen to write an elegy (as I recall, one that was laughed at by some of the boys). After a couple of unsuccessful writing blogs, I created this blog in January 2015 and have been updating it frequently ever since.
Thanks in part to this blog and the confidence it has given me, I have also had my debut collection of poetry, “City of the World”, published. This tells the story of my time in Vietnam. You can read more about it here and purchase it here. You may also find extracts from this book dotted around my blog.
I hope you enjoy my writing!
