The shortlist for the 2012 Salt Publishing Scott Prize has recently been announced - so, being one of last year's winners, I just wanted to say a quick congrats and good luck to the 11 who have made the cut. You can see who they are here. I recognise a few names on there so it's going to be really interesting to find out who the winner is, when the decision is made around April. If you want to find out more about each shortlistee, Salt are running a series of interviews on their blog - click here and look at the blog post list on the right-hand side for #ScottPrize - The Shortlist in Profile. There's a few on there already, more to come. So good luck everyone. From the story extracts I've seen so far, it looks like it's going to be a tough year.
