About Georgia Clark
Short story: Georgia Clark is an author, performer and screenwriter based in Brooklyn. She wrote the critically acclaimed novel, The Regulars, and the "witty, sexy" (L.A. Times) The Bucket List, both Simon & Schuster. Georgia is the host/founder of the storytelling night, Generation Women, which invites six generations of women to tell a story on a theme. She is currently developing The Regulars as a TV show for E!. 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 now. Her third novel, The Regulars, was her first adult fiction novel. The Regulars received widespread praise and press. It was translated into half a dozen different languages and is in development at E!/CBS Studios as a one-hour television show.
Georgia is the host and creator of the New York Times-recommended Generation Women, a monthly storytelling night in Brooklyn, NY. Generation Women invites six women of note from six different generations, 20s through 70s, 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.
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 2014.
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 performed improv in New York for seven years and is a former UCB house team member. Georgia is enthusiastically vegetarian, proudly queer, definitely a city-dweller, and a long-time lover and supporter of the arts, including 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.
