Lindsay Clark, Writer
Specializing in narrative nonfiction/memoir
Lindsay Clark is a small town Hoosier who has spent the last decade traveling internationally and writing about postmodern nomadism on her blog Nomadderwhere.com. She graduated from Indiana University with a B.A. in Studio Art and Art History and later earned her M.F.A. in Creative Writing from Goddard College. Clark currently resides in Denver, Colorado and is finishing her first book about grief, privilege, and cross-cultural understanding set in Fiji—what she calls "the most beautiful place on Earth."
I marvel at the natural world and use writing to process that wonder. Readers of my work want to broaden their viewpoint on the world and contemplate the beauty as well as the darkness that comes with being a part of it.
As an avid traveler, educator, and artist, I have a passion for exposing new ways of thinking and living to people who don’t know what they don’t know (but are willing to learn!). I endeavor to tell honest stories about my lived experience as a postmodern nomad, through essays and memoirs that inspect where cultures cross or collide. It is my goal to reach people young and old through publishing traditional books as well as online platforms, in order to spark dialogues that investigate our globalized world.
Work in Progress:
I am currently finishing a travel and culture memoir set in the highlands of Fiji. The WIP will be ready in 2019, and I plan to seek representation for traditional publication.
