Nicole Clark is an LA-based culture writer and critic at VICE, where she covers identity, entertainment, communities, gaming, and mental health. She also loves reviewing books, films, television, and video games—especially science fiction, romantic comedy, and anything that is deeply, abidingly sad. Nicole is a Craig Newmark Society for Features Journalism Fellow.
Previously, Nicole worked as a contributing editor and interim editor-in-chief at The Bold Italic, a digital Bay Area culture magazine. Her work has been featured in New York Magazine (The Cut, Science of Us), Salon, and The Los Angeles Review of Books. She has been on NPR’s KCRW, BBC Radio 5 Live, and Waypoint Radio.
Prior to VICE, to supplement her freelancing, Nicole worked as a legal writer, helping dancers and choreographers obtain O-1 work visas. She has some fun stories about getting people into the US for Coachella. Nicole also helped raise $42k through Kickstarter for the literary magazine Off Assignment and designed their website.
Nicole is half-Taiwanese and a proud member of AAJA.
