About Georgia Clark
Short story: Georgia Clark is the author of The Regulars and The Bucket List (Simon & Schuster) and the creator of Generation Women. She also wrote the YA novels She’s With The Band and Parched. A native Australian, she lives in Brooklyn with her girlfriend and a fridge full of cheese.
Long story: Georgia Clark is an author, screenwriter, and performer currently living in New York City. Her fourth novel, The Bucket List, is out summer 2018. Her third novel, The Regulars, is her first adult fiction novel. The Regulars received widespread praise and press, including being a finalist for the USA Best Book Awards and a Rising Star 2016 by Amazon UK. It is being translated into half a dozen different languages and has been optioned as a TV show by CBS Studios.
Georgia is the host and creator of Generation Women, a monthly storytelling night in Brooklyn, NY. Generation Women invites five women of note from five different generations to share an original story on a theme.
Her first novel, She’s With The Band (Allen & Unwin, 2008), is a Young Adult coming-of-age about a trio of teenagers who start a band. It is based on her own experience "singing" in a "band" called Dead Dead Girls despite having very little musical ability.
Her second novel Parched (Holiday House, 2014) is a YA sci-fi dystopia set in a world without water. It was inspired by years of being a scrappy student revolutionary while at the University of Technology, Sydney. Here she completed a Bachelor of Communication (Media Arts & Production) and spent time making short films (such as The Heist) and music videos. Parched was favourably reviewed by Booklist, School Library Journal and Kirkus Reviews, the latter summarizing it as “bold futurist adventure with unusual romance, riveting action and ominous ecological red flags.”
Georgia has received a grant for her fiction and has been selected to attend various writer’s residencies in the US and Europe. She is the creator of the online course The Pro-Active Author.
In 2014, she co-wrote the play Pickles & Hargraves, and the Curse of the Tanzanian Glimmerfish with Ryan Williams. This one-hour comic murder mystery follows a debonair mouse detective who solves a murder at the 49th Annual Fish Fanciers Convention. It was selected for a five-show run at the New York International Fringe Festival.
In Australia, Georgia won a national film and TV pitching competition for an original one-hour television pilot, Starts at Sunset. She has written for the Aussie TV drama Home & Away, and has created several pilots, spec scripts and web series. She's worked as a freelance journalist for over ten years and is published in Cosmo, Bust, In-Style, Daily Life and many more.
Georgia has been performing improv in New York for seven years. Trained at the Upright Citizen’s Brigade Theater, she's a former UCB house team member. She appeared in The Untitled Web Series That Morgan Evans Is Doing For MTV (MTV). Georgia is enthusiastically vegetarian, proudly queer, definitely a city-dweller, and a long-time lover and supporter of the arts, such as New York and Sydney's indie theater scenes and Australia's Erotic Fan Fiction community (of which Eddie Sharp kindly credits her as a co-creator). She loves beach days, group dinners, and her beautiful girlfriend.
Georgia is available for consultations and speaking.
