A young Benalla writer has been published in a High Country Library book.February 1, 2013 6:55am
As the Benalla Ensign reported a few weeks ago, our town has its share of talented writers, with 13-year-old Clare Pryor the latest to join the ranks of the published.
Clare’s passion for poetry from a young age has paid off after earning a spot in the combined High Country Library Corporation and State Library of Victoria’s Writes of Spring book, and winning a Readings Bookshop voucher.
With Clare’s parents nurturing her talent — her father John has just published his third book in retirement — the home-schooled student was bound to flourish.
While maintaining an interest in most things, Clare is particularly attracted to putting pen to paper about animals, having two dogs and a cat.
Her favourite authors are Tolkien, Shakespeare, Thomas Hardy and George Elliott and she reads every night. Clare’s talents know no bounds — she is also a pianist.
Clare will this year head to Melbourne where she will attend boarding school.
