About me

Claire J. Harris is a writer of short stories, creative non-fiction and screenplays, who has spent the last decade travelling, working and writing around the world.

This is not as glamourous as it sounds and usually involves scraping by on a diet of muesli and cheap wine – as well as doing a bunch of otherwise inane jobs, like looking after aging aristocrats in the English countryside or producing Amish reality TV in New York.

Her fiction and travel stories have been published in Australia and overseas, including for Matador NetworkSubtle FictionDigital AmericanaGo NomadThe Big Smoke, and a regular travel column in Litro Magazine.

Claire wrote and produced her first feature film, Zelos, which was released in 2017. She holds a Masters in Writing, and a Graduate Certificate in Screenwriting from the Australian Film Television and Radio School.

Claire is based in Melbourne where she works as a copywriter. Sadly, the only relation this bears to Mad Men is the quantity of alcohol consumed. She is currently working on a book of her travels, called What Are You Running From?
