About Clare Rees

Clare Rees is the debut author of Jelly – a YA novel exploring life atop a giant jellyfish out at sea, when the world as we know it has ended. Life is gloopy, toxic and full of tentacles. It's also really boring ... until Martha and her friends contemplate an escape.

Alongside writing, Clare works as a Head of English and has created the educational resources featured here herself. Designed to hit the top-band requirements for assessment with AQA, these resources have a particularly great focus on creative writing for teenagers.
