Rhiannon J Davies

I have been working as a writer/editor since I moved to Istanbul in 2012.

I worked as the  Arts and Culture Editor for The Guide Istanbul magazine/website for 18 months before going freelance in 2014. I subsequently wrote a weekly column for the English language version of one of Turkey’s biggest newspapers. I’ve worked on updating the latest editions of the Rough Guide to Istanbul, the Frommers Guide to Istanbul,  and the Fodors Guide to Turkey. I have also contributed articles to various international magazines, newspapers and websites including Publish.org, Commonspace, Songlines, DJBroadcast, Positive News, Paste, Time Out, The Skinny,  The Cable, Skylife, and more.  I also work as the Arts Editor for The Norwich Radical.

In 2016, I returned to the UK to embark on Media, Communications, and International Journalism Masters run by the renowned Glasgow Media Group at the University of Glasgow, which was an opportunity to learn new skills in video production and gave me a more academic insight into the role of the media. I was awarded a Distinction and the Outstanding Student Award. In 2017, I relocated to Brussels for a five month paid journalism traineeship on the audiovisual news desk of the European Parliament. I’m also currently carrying our research for a book on war, memory and the media.

When I’m not busy tapping away at my computer, I work on a freelance basis as a Tour Manager for archaeology themed specialty tour company, Andante Travels, and as an Artist Liaison Manager at various popular music festivals across the UK and Europe.  You can follow my travels on Instagram.
