Matthew Turner

We spoke to Matthew Turner, senior lecturer at Chelsea College of Arts who is currently finishing his first short story collection. His essays, reviews and short stories have been published in Art Review, Frieze, Gorse and elsewhere. In 2021 his story ‘Loom’ was included in Salt’s Best British Short Stories.

We discuss his new story in our December/January issue, ‘Still Life’, share our experiences with the supernatural, and Matthew gives one of our listeners his best tips for finding a mentor and community in the literary world.
