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.

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.

Post the task, set a budget and sit back to let it happen. We’ve posted tasks in audio transcription and HTML, and it’s rare not to have at least ten bids within only a few days. Many are from the US, a handful are from Australia, and the rest are scattered across the world.

Motion Theory is one of the new breed of companies to capitalise on the creative outsourcing of the digital effects era, comparable to the league Sydney’s Animal Logic launched itself into with the release of George Miller’s Happy Feet .
