Tanner J Muller is an emerging writer and creative professional based in Adelaide, South Australia. He is a recent graduate from the University of South Australia, with a Bachelor of Arts (English and Creative Writing), sub-majoring in Performing Arts degree. He will undertake an Honours program in 2018, focusing his research on queer theory and how aspects of this can be applied as a way of creating a collection of short fictional stories.
Currently, he markets his own artistic/professional works through his website, where he posts articles, reviews, short stories and theatre/performance pieces to a reasonable following.
Tanner’s work has appeared in multiple print/digital publications, including Glam Adelaide, Kill Your Stereo, YEWTH, Verse Magazine, Weekend Notes, Mind Shave, What’s On In Adelaide, and the Piping Shrike anthology series.
He also has a fervent interest in performance, with an understanding of stage/screen directing, writing and acting. His debut directorial project, ‘Sanity,’ utilised theatrical movement and imagery to portray how confinement can affect the mental state of a prisoner once they encounter the ‘outside world.’
His volunteering experience includes The Adelaide Fringe and Australian Short Story Festival, where he assisted in the production of projects, exhibitions, and activities.
