Charlotte Higgins

Charlotte Higgins is an award-winning British author and journalist.

Deeply fascinated by Antiquity from an early age, Charlotte Higgins studied Classics at Balliol College, Oxford. She began her journalistic career at Vogue magazine in 1995 and two years later moved to the Guardian, where she has served as the classical music editor, arts correspondent, and chief cultural writer, as well as writing for the New Yorker, the New Statesman and Prospect.

In 2009, Higgins published her first book, Latin Love Lessons, which explores Ovid and the art of love in ancient Rome, followed by It's All Greek To Me in 2010. Her next book, Under Another Sky: Journeys in Roman Britain (2013), was shortlisted for several awards including Samuel Johnson Prize (now the Baillie Gifford Prize for Non-Fiction) and the Wainwright Prize. In 2014, Higgins wrote a 9-piece documentary on the history of the BBC, which she expanded into a book titled This New Noise (2015). Her fourth book Red Thread (2018) explores mazes and labyrinths in mythology, art, literature and history, whereas Greek Myths (2021) injects new energy into the spellbinding tales of the ancient Greeks by placing female characters at the heart of the action.
