My name’s Oliver Hotham and I’m a journalist. I grew up in Geneva, before leaving to study History at Queen Mary, University of London in 2010, and have lived and worked in London ever since.

I like to think of myself as a generalist, and I’ve written everything from news to longform journalism on subjects from hotels to architecture to domestic British politics and a lot about North Korea. I’ve written for national newspapers and print magazines, as well as for the web. My work’s been published in Vice, Noisey, the Daily Telegraph, the Guardian, and NK News,  among others. Take a look at some of my work, vaguely categorised, on the side bar.

You might also follow this blog because of a little 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.

You can email me at ohotham@gmail.com, and you find me on LinkedIn and follow me on Twitter.

  1. Hi Oliver,
    Do you mind if we list your excellent blog on our site?
    We are looking to share blogs created by student journalists and we stumbled upon yours and love to list it!

    1. Hi Mark,
      It is very nice of you to offer Oliver the listing. I looked for Oliver’s blog at JournoWave and realised that it is not listed there yet.

      Hi Oliver,
      I hope that the unfortunately censorship issue will be amicably resolved and never happen again. It is really not easy to be a journalist nowadays, as gagging can come in many forms.

      Happy December to both of you soon!
