Georgia Clark is an author, screenwriter and performer currently living in New York City. Her third novel, The Regulars, will be published by Emily Bestler Books (Atria/Simon & Schuster) in summer 2016. The Regulars is Georgia’s first adult fiction novel.
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 writer’s residencies in the US and Europe. She occasionally teaches at Lit Reactor.
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, CLEO, Daily Life, Sunday Life, Girlfriend and 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.
