About Katie

I'm Katie Clark Gray (she/her), an NYC-based writer-producer and story editor, and one-half of the creative development firm Uncompromised Creative. I'm on the lookout for freelance audio work in scripting, story editing, interviewing, researching, and early-stage creative development. 

Currently, I'm currently a writer/producer on a new Wondery show in development (more TK), and a contributor to the excellent Good Tape magazine: look for the upcoming Celebrity Issue, out this fall! I'm also a writer/producer on the short film Everyone Loves Candy, currently in post. Previously, I was a senior writer for the podcast Masters of Scale with Reid Hoffman, I won multiple Webby and Signal Awards for audio storytelling (including wins for episodes with Barack Obama, JJ Abrams, Stacey Abrams, and Tyra Banks, and nods for episodes with Daymond John, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and others). I've also been a contributing writer and editor to the Spark and Fire podcast, Meditative Story, and Should This Exist?; a guest writer/performer for the fiction noir podcast Fathom; and senior producer for The Come Up with Cassie Freeman (Aunt Viv, Bel Air).

My pre-audio life was as a playwright and filmmaker. Writing credits include The Paper Store with Penn Badgley, the cyber-thriller User 927 (winner, Next Generation New Play Contest), and the adaptation of the acclaimed memoir Now Everyone Will Know. I earned a Pew Fellowship in Playwriting, was an inaugural member of Interact Theatre’s Core Writers, whose other notable alums include James Ijames (Fat Ham on B’way), and the LAByrinth Theatre Co.’s Intensive Ensemble. Invitee, Lark Theatre Co.’s Playwrights’ Week (RIP).

For years, I worked with incarcerated persons as an instructor and artist-in-residence for restorative justice programs; anyone looking to collaborate on projects dealing with the carceral system should hit me up.

Wish-list pod projects in development: DO OVER (watch this space), a nonfiction pod about second chances and horrible mistakes; and adapting my doomed relationship play Two Front Teeth (finalist, NNPN conference) for fiction audio. I live in Astoria with my creative partner Nicholas Gray, a teen kid actor & filmmaker, and two extremely extra rescue dogs.
