Taking its cue from the vivid contribution of the short text to European cultural life and judging that the moment is right to reinvigorate the essay, Notting Hill Editions is devoted to the best in essayistic nonfiction writing. John Gordon, Director of Contagious, the consultancy for innovative advertising and co-founder of leading debate platform Intelligence Squared and Tom Kremer, the man responsible for discovering and licensing the Rubik’s Cube have brought together a dynamic team to reinvigorate the art of the essay. Our writers come from a broad range of disciplines ensuring our essays will never fail to excite and inspire as they cover an ever-changing spectrum of topics.
Nottinghilleditions.com is intended to be the hub of all Notting Hill Editions activity, developing a community around great essay writing. To achieve this, author, Daily Telegraph columnist and blogger Harry Mount will be editor of our online journal featuring new essays monthly, and Ophelia Field will dynamically referee our Top Essay Chart, where the public get to select and vote on the Greatest Essays of All Time, emphasizing once again, the vital role essays have had in our literary, artistic, philosophical and political cultures.
