About Giles Turnbull
making mistakes since 1970


Self portrait of Giles Turnbull

I'm a creative writer. I help people solve problems by explaining things clearly and simply. I work for the Government Digital Service, helping to explain the work that it does and the way it gets done.

Previously, I worked freelance as a technology journalist, copywriter and syndicated columnist. I contributed to a handful of books. Some people have 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.

You can find me elsewhere online: Twitter, Flickr, Instagram and Pinboard.
