Matthew Turner

Matthew Turner joined Rogers, Coleridge & White in 2012. He has a BA in English Literature and an MA in Creative Writing. Matt assists Peter Straus and is also curating his own list of writers.

In non-fiction Matt’s tastes tend towards agenda-setting social issues – be they economic, political, scientific, environmental – and voices writing from the centre of those issues. They can be tackled by academics, journalists or those with lived experience. He reads narrative non-fiction, and favours playful, hybrid texts, undergirded by emotionally intelligent storytelling.

Matt is looking for fiction that takes a side-long look at the world, and which hopes to speak, to some degree, about its present. It should be propelled by character, atmosphere and have a vividly realised landscape.
