Financing cultural journals: The Turkish case

introduction Osman Deniztekin introduces a survey of Turkish journals that "Varlik" conducted in autumn 2012. Like their European counterparts, Turkish journals need public support. However, they are far more wary of risking their independence by receiving government funding. [ more ]

Mustafa Aydogan

"It's best if all journals are self-sufficient"

Edebiyat Ortami, Turkey

survey Mustafa Aydogan, editor of "Edebiyat Ortami", explains why he thinks the moral support of governments is healthier than their financial support where journals are concerned. As for the quality of journals, diversity of content is crucial. Thus, every journal creates its own readership. [ more ]

Elif Bereketli

"Journals should inspire and learn from each other"

SabitFikir, Turkey

survey "SabitFikir" editor Elif Bereketli contends that digital forms are not yet capable of replacing literary journals, at the same time as setting her sights set on a project based exclusively on social media. In a harsh climate for many forms of writing and publishing, innovation is key. [ more ]

"When ethics and quality come together"

Iyi Kitap, Turkey

survey Zarife Biliz of "Iyi Kitap", which specializes in children's and youth literature, challenges journals to stop printing unimpressive pieces by renowned authors and instead give voice to a variety of authors selected with more editorial attention, and be more inclusive. [ more ]

Ali Çakmak

"As the time between thought and expression is shortened..."

Duvar, Turkey

survey Ali Çakmak of "Duvar" believes there should be public funding not just for journals, but the publishing industry in general.

Turgay Fisekçi

"...why would anyone need different journals?"

Sözcükler, Turkey

survey If millions of students in Turkey were offered cultural journals, it could transform the sector. But culture is threatened, not least by a crude desire to secure popularity, argues Turgay Fişekçi of "Sözcükler". The result: sclerosis and, in the end, the same writers appearing in the same journals. [ more ]

Turgay Özçelik

"Print and digital media should support each other"

Kültür Mafyasi, Turkey

survey Even if journals are interested in current affairs, they should go to the root of the matter and present alternatives, writes Turgay Özçelik of "Kültür Mafyasi" – a journal that began online and just launched a print version: "We need to shed light on what mainstream media choose not to see".

Hakan Sarkdemir

"We don't want public support; we want readers"

Karagöz, Turkey

survey Hakan Sarkdemir cites the lack of a professional distribution network as the biggest problem for Turkish journals. That said, being visible and selling well; selling well and being read well; being read well and having many readers: social media aside, these are not the same thing. [ more ]

Murat Yalçin

"The journal reader is the minority everywhere in the world"

Kitap-lik, Turkey

survey Murat Yalçin of "Kitap-lik" asserts that culture and the arts thrive on individual awareness and thought, not collective sensibilities. Thus every journal must learn to cherish its knowledgeable readers – for which there are no simple formulas based on "responsibility", "mission" or service. [ more ]

Britain flouts the European Court of Justice
