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.


Jeff Bridges
November 29th, 2016

Mr and Mrs Smith
June 9th, 2005

The consequences are disastrous as the marital cold war gets hot. It’s part comic allegory about the battles of an unhappy marriage, part action thriller.


A New Direction in HR
April 1st, 2002

The last 12 months have been spent repositioning the Department of Training as a recognised trader in knowledge management, and in line with their new focus, they’ve taken some innovative steps to align people skills with the direction of the organisation.

What the Butler Saw
May 14th, 2013

he’s even less forthcoming on the subject of a rumoured affair with co-star Jessica Biel while filming Playing For Keeps in Shreveport, Louisiana. It’s a popular story, with ‘a source close to’ the star saying he considers Biel the one that got away, regretting the way he treated her by running scared when she wanted something more serious.


P.S. I Love You
December 20th, 2007

It won’t be for everyone, but everyone who sees it will get something out of it. Like 2005’s In Her Shoes, it’s a chick flick that almost perfectly encapsulates so many things about life and all its idiosyncracies.

Zombie Strippers
February 5th, 2009

You’d think an impressionist Romanian playwright is about as far as you could get from the most Cormanesque, unashamed B movie premise of recent times, but the Internet Movie Database would have us believe Zombie Strippers was inspired by Eugene Ionesco’s play about people turning into rhinoceros’.
