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.

I used to be a journalist. I worked for the BBC, The Guardian, The Daily Telegraph,, Dopplr, the Press Association and The Morning News. For 14 years, I wrote a syndicated column about the internet. 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.
