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.


Unique Celebrity Workouts
April 6th, 2013

They know what’s trendy and on the radar, they’re always ahead of the curve, and if need be, money is no object. Best of all, just look at the results. Take a leaf out of the books of these celebrity fitness enthusiasts and you might put yourself on the fast track to an A list body.

Inside Out
November 1st, 2002

It’s the oldest media around, and the only one people talk about with misty-eyed romanticism. Between 15th century clergymen painstakingly transcribing manuscripts by hand and today’s lightning fast communications and computer-generated info-edu-tainment, the humble book has hardly changed.


The Dark Knight Rises
December 20th, 2011

The clip takes place on a plane and involves a jaw dropping mid-air heist the likes of which we expect from Bond films. It also introduces the menacing and genuinely scary Bane, played by Thomas Hardy.

The Business End of Broadband
April 1st, 2005

As summarised by producer Sue Maslin; ‘It’s information rich, you can take your users through a narrative if they choose, but they can look at primary source material any time too. It enables the user to construct their own history.


MotoROKR EQ7 Speakers
October 15th, 2008

The sound that pumps out of the four speakers of the 15x18cm unit is very high quality, only starting to break up at a volume much louder than you’ll have it set for everyday. Music sounded great and a phone call was crystal clear. Simple controls on the body to adjust volume, track controls or phone calls round a great product off.

Team America
December 2nd, 2004

You have your Michael Moores, The Corporations, No Logos and Manufacturing Consents. But the sharpest barb yet thrown at the power structure of western society comes in the guise of a puppet show sending up a typical action movie.
