About

Dilvin Yasa began her media career in 2000 when she took on a ‘character-building’ position within the men’s lifestyle division of ACP Magazines (now Bauer Media). Over her 13-year tenure at Australia’s largest publishing house, Dilvin worked across a wide range of publications, from food to fashion and everything in between. Before she left the company to go freelance in 2013, Dilvin was the features director across the Cosmopolitan Brand Extensions titles (Cosmo Bride, Cosmo Pregnancy, Cosmo Health & Beauty, Cosmo Baby Checklist).

In 2011, Dilvin signed a book deal with Pan Macmillan; her first book Things My Daughter Needs to Know, was published in 2012, followed by Good Enough: Confessions of a Less-Than-Perfect Mum in 2014. Between the publication of these two books, Dilvin also created and edited a stand-alone publication in conjunction with Australia’s biggest magazine: The Australian Women’s Weekly Ultimate Guide to Divorce.

First appearing on television to promote her first book back in 2012, Dilvin has been making regular appearances ever since, often being called in to appear on panels for shows such as Mornings, The Morning Show, Today, The Daily Edition and Sky News Business Class. Her first TV show, Global Roaming, aired on Channel Nine in early 2020. The travel show is co-hosted by Getaway presenter David Whitehill and by all accounts it’s exactly as the show’s executive producer put it during filming: “David brings the good looks and charm and Dilvin’s just… this dark horse.” Worth a look.

In her spare time, Dilvin enjoys reading, subjecting her family (Dilvin has two daughters) to tragic 80s music and arguing with her husband over what they each believe is the perfect individual serve of pasta (the correct answer is half a pack, any pack).

Since she began freelancing in 2013, Dilvin has written for magazines, newspaper and websites around the globe, from Denmark and Turkey to the UAE and the UK. In Australia, her work can most commonly be found in News Corp’s Escape, where she has a weekly column, Fairfax’s Sunday Life, 9Honey and across most of the glossies (or, whatever is left of them), including inflight magazines. Dilvin also writes content for a wide range of clients, from tourism boards and financial institutions to charities and her travel journalism has seen her travel to the most remote corners of the globe, from the refugee camps of Uganda to ice trekking in Antarctica.
