Cara Thompson

Cara Thompson (or ‘CreativelyCandid’) is a writer, poet, and self-described “Black Wellness Warrior” from Nottingham, England. Born into a lively Jamaican-British family, Cara started writing at the age of 14 in the form of silly short stories and secret songwriting sessions with mates. Since then, Cara has used poetry to explore her identity, celebrate her Caribbean heritage, and address the often-unspoken impacts of racism on Black British community members. Cara has collaborated with the NHS, Oxfam, Simon and Schuster and more, and she is currently a proud member of the Nottingham based poetry collective ‘GOBS’. She also loves cheese.
