About

Georgie Codd
Georgie Codd has worked behind the scenes at a funeral parlour, taught English in a Himalayan nunnery, edited publications for the Tibetan Government in Exile, and shadowed drug dealers in Florida City. 

She is a graduate of the University of East Anglia's Prose-writing MA, where her flash fiction won the Seth Donaldson Bursary. Her first book, We Swim To The Shark, is out now with Fleet Books.

In early 2022, her next book project caught the attention of the multi-award-winning US radio show This American Life. The resulting interview, 'Classified Dads', was broadcast in June, and is available to download here.

Georgie has also spoken about her work on BBC Radio 4's Woman's Hour, the Monocle podcast, ABC Melbourne, the i paper, and others. (More information on the Press page.)

She is the founder and director of the lockdown-inspired 'antiviral' literary festival, BookBound 2020, in aid of the mental health charities Mind (in the UK) and Changing Minds (New Zealand). The festival won a Time Out Award by public vote, and is now available as a podcast series. Learn more and donate via www.bookbound2020.co.uk

You can hear Georgie on Season One of the nonfiction podcast, NonFicPod, presented with author and co-host Emma Byrne.
