Claire Hartley


My name is Claire, I'm a service designer who also writes personal poems about my experiences of coming out as a lesbian, loving, being heartbroken and existing in the LGBTQ+ community today.

Words on paper can become as dear to me as the times they are written about so as I fluctuate through life's good and bad, I try to capture my feelings and truths in short poems. Maybe it helps me grow or something....
