Welcome, I’m Catherine Yiğit

I am a writer living near the ancient city of Troy in northwestern Turkey. I arrived in Turkey from Ireland on a roundabout route which circumnavigated the globe.

Arriving without a word of the language, I began writing as a way to freely express myself and explore my new life.

I am currently revising my near-future science fiction novel.

I contributed to two anthologies written by foreign women with connections to Turkey: Tales from the Expat Harem: Foreign women in Modern Turkey edited by Anastasia M. Ashman and Jennifer Eaton Gökmen and Expat Sofra – Culinary Tales of Foreign Women in Turkey edited by Katherine Belliel and Francesca Rosa.

I have worked as a translator and editor of academic papers for the last decade.
