About Me

Derya Dinç

   I am a graduate of Bilkent University in Turkey, where I earned a degree in Business Information Management, graduating at the top of my class. My career in the publishing industry began at Koleksiyon Yayinevi, where I served as the Foreign Rights Director. During this time, I received extensive training in editing and translation.

   Subsequently, I joined Beta Yayinevi, contributing as a translator, editor, and publishing rights editor. My journey in publishing also included representing the company at international book fairs in London, Bologna, Frankfurt, and Istanbul. Additionally, I managed social media, reporting, and logistics for Beta Yayinevi and contributed articles to Porsche Club Istanbul Magazine.

 My responsibilities encompassed diverse projects, including publishing rights acquisition, translation, editing, printing, and reporting for renowned publishers such as DK, National Geographic, NatGeo Kids, Disney, Marvel, Star Wars, DreamWorks, and Guinness World Records. I was also involved in co-production projects with Chinese printers.

  To further enhance my skill set, I completed courses in Digital Marketing and Social Media Management at Zirve Akademi, Writing at Yildiz Teknik University, and SEO at Istanbul Isletme Enstitusu in 2019. Additionally, I earned diplomas in Novel Writing, Fantasy Writing, Proofreading, and Editing from the Centre of Excellence.

   In 2022, I transitioned into the gaming sector as a game writer. I undertook various courses on game design and writing, as well as technical aspects such as Unreal Engine. In 2024, I began working with Apex Development on their new RPG project.

   Today, I leverage my experience and expertise as a freelance editor and writer, offering my services to a wide range of clients.
