Bishop Turner was a prolific author who extensively published in both the religious and secular press. Responding to regional differences, Turner founded the Southern Recorder in 1888, the Voice of Missions in 1892, and the Voice of the People in 1901. The last two were devoted to mission work. Turner also published a catechism, a hymnal, and a book entitled, The Genius and Theory of Methodist Polity (1885).

The first time Turner travelled to Africa, he maintained correspondence with the AME Church's print organ, The Christian Recorder. His series of letters were very popular. When he returned, he published the collection in a pamphlet called African Letters in 1893. Because Turner’s publications were so popular, the AME Church's publishing house, the Book Concern had a hard time keeping them stocked.
