Making mistakes since 1970

Self portrait of Giles Turnbull

I'm a creative writer. I work for the Government Digital Service, helping to explain the work that it does and the way it gets done.

My background is in technology journalism. I was a syndicated columnist for over 14 years. I've worked for the BBC, The Guardian, The Daily Telegraph,, Dopplr, the Press Association and The Morning News, among many others. I contributed to a handful of books. Some people said nice things about my work.

I created Blockbox, Bad Transport Poetry and Good Postcard Club. I write an occasional newsletter packed with interesting links.
