Didem Durak Akser's CV as of 20 August, 2016

Hi!

This is Didi here. 

I am a writer, screenwriter,  film scholar, and translator. 

This is rather a portfolio site for my acquaintances in the industries that I work in. I hope those who are not familiar with my work could also have a glimpse of it. My one-pen, one-person (occasionally more) journal/magazine is entertaining.

"Are you a writer?" they asked.

"I try to be a good one." I said. 

"You say you're one. You say you're one." they said.

Yes, I write.
