AboutTess Church, Author at The Creative Issue

Tess Church

Tess Church

I am a cat loving, opshopper with a knack for hoarding classical novels. One of my greatest passions is music. I enjoy many genres, however, the performing arts -particularly musicals, are my forte. Some of my favourites include The Phantom of the Opera, The Lion King and Les Miserables. I am also a great lover of all genres of film, from comedy to romance to horror. I love looking up IMDB trivia facts of whatever movie I’m watching and telling the most interesting facts to everyone in the room. I also enjoy photography, devising my zombie apocalypse plan and sushi. I am currently studying a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Creative and Professional Writing) with minors of Journalism and Advertising at the Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane.
