William Armstrong

Istanbul, Turkey

I'm a journalist and editor in Istanbul, working as senior digital journalist for BBC Monitoring's Turkey team.

Until 2018 I wrote a weekly book review column for the Hürriyet Daily News and freelance articles for publications including the Times Literary Supplement, the New York Times, Foreign Policy, Literary Review, Politico, War on the Rocks, Turkish Policy Quarterly and others.

Since 2015 I have presented and produced Turkey Book Talk, a biweekly podcast featuring interviews with authors, academics and journalists. That podcast is what I mostly use this blog to promote these days.
