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.

Crowd Science
June 13th, 2011

The term crowdsourcing wasn’t coined until the web age, undoubtedly because it enabled the collecting, aggregating and processing power we need to let crowdsourcing take full flight.

Ed Burns
January 29th, 2012

Ed Burns playing a cop – haven’t we seen that before? Many times in fact, but as the refreshingly honest and effusive co-star of Man on a Ledge explains, acting jobs are a means to a much more fulfilling end for him.
