Ah be abi.
A Turkish Call for New Yorker-style Writing
Serdar Turgut at Aksam apparently reads the New Yorker religiously (he's even crazy enough to own its 75 years of archived material on CDs, he says) and has the giddy dream of putting out a Turkish magazine that shares its high standards and respect for the art of writing. He thnks that a lot of undiscovered writers in Turkey have the talent and is calling for submissions to be sent to Sayin Serdar Turgut, Aksam Gazestesi, Davutpasa Cad. No: 34, Topkapi/Istanbul 34010. No restrictions except: No politics and no poems. The Russians have tried this already, hopefully this one won't go the same direction.
