Join James Rebanks, Monique Roffey and John Harris/John Domokos from “Anywhere But Westminster” as they discuss the political implications behind their Orwell-Prize longlisted work, prompted by the theme of ‘home’.
James Rebanks is longlisted for The Orwell Prize for Political Writing 2021 for his book English Pastoral. Monique Roffey is listed for the Political Fiction prize for her novel The Mermaid of Black Conch, while Journalism Prize-nominated “Anywhere But Westminster” are listed for their The Guardian video series on the U.K. during Covid.
The Orwell Prize longlists feature the finest political writing across non-fiction, fiction and journalism of last year: work that our judging panels believe best fulfils Orwell’s state ambition “to make political writing into an art.” Throughout the spring of 2021, the Orwell Foundation will be celebrating this writing in several ways, including a series of online events in association with independent bookshops across the U.K. These will spotlight some of the major themes arising from the longlists, and will feature writers from different lists being brought together to discuss their work.Book event
