Biography

Georgia Monaghan was born and raised in Sydney, Australia and attended the University of Sydney where she studied English Literature, American History, and Education. She interned at Australia's premier newspaper The Sydney Morning Herald and Sydney radio station 2CH before teaching English Literature, Creative Writing, Media Studies, History, and Drama at several private high schools. Georgia has an extensive background in educational and business management: after only five years of teaching she was promoted to Head of English where she was responsible for a department of eleven staff members and while living in Australia’s stunning Whitsunday Island region she managed a photography business specializing in destination weddings to the Great Barrier Reef.  

Georgia is a published feature writer. Her travel and arts features and essays have appeared in magazines, newspapers and anthologies in Australia and the United States. A passionate traveller, Georgia has travelled extensively throughout Australia, the United States, the Caribbean, and Europe. Travel highlights include experiencing Carnevale in Venice, searching for Santa in Finnish Lapland, and witnessing hurricane mercy efforts in Haiti. 

In 2008 Georgia moved with her husband and two sons to Newtown, CT. Here she was so impressed with the abundance of talented artists and writers she felt compelled to launch a locally-based arts and literary magazine. In addition to editing and managing THE NEWTOWNER: An Arts and Literary Magazine, Georgia taught and facilitated the C.H. Booth Creative Writing Workshop and instructed at the Community Learning Project. 

In 2016 Georgia will be graduating with a Master of Creative Writing from the University of Sydney. She currently leads a creative writing workshop at the NSW Writers' Centre and is working on a novel set in Brooklyn, New York at the turn of the twentieth century.
