Greg Woodland leans towards genre writing. Mostly crime, thriller, black comedy and noir. The darker the better. His debut crime novel The Night Whistler
was published by Text Publishing in 2020 and shortlisted for the 2021 Ned Kelly Awards, Best Debut Crime Fiction. The sequel The Carnival Is Over
was published by Text in 2022. It was shortlisted for the 2023 Ned Kelly Awards, Best Crime Fiction. Greg has won several writing awards including the Eleanor Dark Flagship Fellowship (2004); my vampire novel Pangs won Varuna NSW Writers Centre Fellowship (2013), Varuna Litlink Fellowship (2014); my crime novel The Night Whistler
won a Bundanon Artist’s Residency Fellowship (2015), and 2017 ASA Writers Mentorship for Fiction. Greg has previously written/directed several award-winning short films (Tripe, Sharky’s Party, Green, Target Audience, Your Turn) and docos including ‘Chasing Birds’. I've written ten feature scripts and taught screenwriting at university level including Macquarie Uni, UTS, NIDA, Australian Film Base and AFTRS, both online courses and weekend workshops. As the founder-director of Australia’s leading script development business, Script Central since 2003, I’ve script edited many produced scripts ie. ‘Shayda’, ‘Moon Rock for Monday’, ‘Don’t Tell’, ‘Broken’, ‘Needle’, ‘The Bet’, ‘Cold Turkey,’ and over 2,000 script assessments.
