Fusing the Medium and the Message

Welcome to the writing of Drew Turney, showcasing recent work I've done for publications and institutions throughout Australia and the world. Select a link from the random sample below that interests you or suits your publication, or use the menu to browse by category or sub-category. If the short excerpt sounds good, click the title to read on.

How can this site help you? By showing you my abilities in researching and writing stories that are engaging and easy to understand, skills over a dozen publications call on regularly.

My parallel career in design and computers is the basis for my technology writing. I'm putting my love of movies and books to practical use in film and book reviews and am talking to the personalities in publishing and filmmaking as well as reporting on the art and business of both crafts. I'm also writing general features on everything from celebrities and business to ideas and culture.

I've written over 15 novels, dozens of short stories, poetry, a journal now in its 22nd year and countless other pieces of random creative thought. If you're curious about any of my imaginative, creative or fiction writing, contact me.

50 First Dates

Adam Sandler keeps on trying to mesh his old ways with his new, self-styled leading man persona. Does it work? Partly, but it’s hard to excuse the occasionally shoddy scriptwriting that seems to follow him wherever he goes.


Faster cloud storage for WA users
September 17th, 2012

“Here in the west we had a lot of clients saying they wanted capability,” Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand chief executive Mike Foster said. “People were concerned about the latency and communications cost of having data on the east coast. Having the data centre here gives you great capacity.

Why Diets Make Us Fat
October 22nd, 2016

If the size and influence of the diet industry and the battles many people wage – often over decades – to control their weight seems nonsensical to you, Why Diets Make Us Fat will be perfect fodder to state your case in future. When a neuroscientist shines a light on the bodily processes involved, it’s […]
