Geordie Timmins is an aspiring writer living in Sydney, NSW. Currently studying his honours in Creative Writing, Geordie has a passion for writing, reading, music and film. He is greatly inspired by the modernist writers of the early 20th century, and contemporary gothic fiction.
Constantly acquiring books at a much higher rate than he can read them, Geordie revels in collection; hoping to amass a library fit for a manor, that will echo with the sounds of the records that are always spinning.
Geordie was the Writing NSW Membership Intern during January-June 2019.
