My name’s Oliver Hotham and I’m a journalist, writer and, as of September 2016, I’m managing editor of NK News, your go-to online news and information service about North Korea. I lived and worked in London from 2010 to 2017. Now, I live in Seoul, South Korea.
I’ve written everything from breaking news to in-depth long-form journalism. My work has been published in VICE UK, Noisey, the Daily Telegraph, the Guardian, and NK News, and a bunch of other places. Have a look at some of my recent bylines, poorly organised, here and you’ll get an idea of what I’m interested in. I’m pretty versatile: I’ve written about everything from oil drilling in Siberia to terrorism to North Korea to cults.
You might also follow this blog because of a thing which happened a few years ago and the fall out surrounding a group called Straight Pride UK, which is now mentioned on Wikipedia – that’s a bit weird for me but it was a bunch of fun at the time.
I’m always interested in stories: you can email me at email@example.com, or find me on Twitter, always.
