Host: The Orwell Prize
Location: Frontline Club, Norfolk Road, London W2 1QJ
Speaker: Helen Goodman MP, Blogger Anna Chen and Professor Suzanne Franks
The Orwell Prize 2014 will launch with our annual debate at the Frontline Club in Paddington on the evening of Monday 21st October where we will introduce our judges and open for entries.
This year's discussion will focus on 'Internet and the Modern Self: Manners and Abuse Online'. The panel of speakers include Helen Goodman MP, Madam Miaow Says blogger Anna Chen and Professor Suzanne Franks. What is going on after a notable summer of online abuse? Why are online personas so different? How do we fix this?
2014 will mark the 21st annual Orwell Prize with last year's winners including Andrew Norfolk who broke the grooming scandal of 2012 and the memorialisation of Marie Colvin for her posthumous collection On the Front Line.
