Orwell Prize Longlist Announced

And they are:

The judges have this year decided to longlist 14 blogs instead of 12 due to the high quality of the submissions. There are some worthy contenders there – and admittedly some that I’ve not heard of. If I had to pick one – which thankfully I don’t – I’d probably go for Mary Beard’s excellent Don’s Lifenot least because she also happens to be a tremendous ancient historian.

I do think there are some notable omissions from the longlist who I would definitely had liked to see included, but such things are inherently subjective.

Anyway, congratulations to all those that have made the longlist!
