Writing

 

I write prose: creative non-fiction and fiction. My work centres the various thematic inheritances of diaspora, including those particular to the Turkish diaspora, discussing inter-generational trauma, class mobility, our changing relationship with whiteness, and ethnonationalism.

I am currently completing my first collection.

You can catch my work in The Lifted BrowMeanjin, OverlandTincture Journal, Scum Mag, Voiceworks Issues 104 and 109, Modern Poetry in Translation, and the Dr TJ Eckleburg Review. My work has also been featured in an art installation produced by Felicity Castagna and Marian Abboud, at Parramatta Lanes Festival 2017.

I am also an ex-arts administrator, having worked as an Associate Producer at the Western Sydney-based WestWords, delivering the 2017-18 program of workshops and opportunities. I recently left to dedicate more time to writing and my PhD.
