Corissa Rieschieck is a creative, bringing to life worlds for people to get lost within. Her focus ranges from the smallest, seemingly insignificant moments of life to the overwhelming, in-your-face and difficult-to-ignore moments, weaving with her words a picture of the emotions that come along with each. She is an entertainer, creating tales full of characters that invite readers to get invested.
With an undergraduate degree majoring in both Creative Writing and Psychology, a post-graduate degree in Education through Monash University, and a Masters in Literature through Deakin University, Corissa Rieschieck is well-versed in writing and editing. Her education, combined with ten years working as a high-school English, Literature, and Psychology teacher, has given her a wealth of experience at reading through other people's work and helping to improve it. Further developing her own experience, she has written and edited poetry and stories since she was in primary school and has had work published in local papers and online over the years; most recently her focus has been on her Masters thesis Representations of Feminised Power in Isobelle Carmody’s Fantasy Fiction, while also writing poetry and creative non-fiction pieces around that.
