Clare Seal MA, MASLI, RSLI and ASLI Trained Mentor
Clare works across Devon (and the South West) as a freelance interpreter, having qualified with a PG Diploma in English/BSL Interpreting from UCLAN/SLI in 2005. She trained as an ASLI Mentor in 2008 and is now experienced in many domains, such as medical, educational, legal and social care settings. She also works in a variety of business, arts and industry settings.
Prior to training as an interpreter, Clare worked in various jobs including social care and community theatre. In 2000, she graduated with a Masters Degree in Creative Writing from Plymouth University, completing her thesis on writing for radio. BBC Radio 4 subsequently broadcast a number of her short stories and radio dramas.
Clare still writes for pleasure and is delighted to be leading a webinar that will explore how the skills of creative writing can help all interpreters to voice the stories that Deaf people tell.
