writing

I write about pop music, film and fandom with a focus on feminist/queer readings, the politics of desire, and experiential writing. I have written for publications including Little White Lies, Dazed and The Drouth, and have contributed essays to a number of zines and exhibition catalogues.

Since 2017, I have been a regular contributor to The Line of Best Fit, mainly writing album reviews, with forays into track reviews and features. You can find all my bylines for the site here.

I am also a staff writer at pop review site The Singles Jukebox, and a full list of my reviews can be found here.

If you are interested in commissioning me for your publication or site, please get in touch at clairebiddles@hotmail.co.uk
