AboutAlex Topakas, Author at The Creative Issue

Alex Topakas

For me, my articles are ideas and excerpts to a novel I'll never finish. But I am constantly writing, constantly evolving and changing in the story that I live - through music, art, theatre and people. I've learnt that novels are never finished, and it is possible for stories to go on to write themselves. As a journalist for The Creative Issue, I hope to share my passion for writing and music through a story that is only just beginning.
