About me

 

A London-based, Istanbul-born dual British-Turkish citizen and an MA graduate of contemporary literature from the universities of York (BA Hons, 2012) and Oxford (MSt, 2013), I am a bilingual Arts journalist freelancing for digital and print publications in both the UK and Turkey, including Art Review, Istanbul Art News, AnOther Magazine and The Economist. With versatile experience that spans writing and researching editorial; digital and social media strategy; proofreading and translating, I have particular strengths within art criticism, film reviews, interviews and multimedia content. I am also experienced in commissioning articles; sourcing images; and organizing both myself and my contacts so as to meet a variety of concurrent deadlines. Open to in-house and distance freelance writing and editing opportunities.
