Does Shortlist have the most obviously self-written letters page in publishing?
This was the scurrilous suggestion from one Press Gazette reader who compiled a short list of ShortlistÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s finest letters:
1 Ã¢â‚¬Å“Irony and topical snacks rolled into one? Yes please!Ã¢â‚¬ Ã¢â‚¬ËœEnzoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢
2 Ã¢â‚¬Å“I am yet another woman who wants to praise you for making such a brilliant mag.Ã¢â‚¬ Ã¢â‚¬ËœNinaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢
3 Ã¢â‚¬Å“Shortlist is a refreshing change from the usual smut that litters other menÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s magazines.Ã¢â‚¬ Ã¢â‚¬ËœMerkDogÃ¢â‚¬â„¢
4 Ã¢â‚¬Å“From comedy to style to interesting features that arenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t about what models call their breastsÃ¢â‚¬¦ Shortlist is cracking!Ã¢â‚¬ Ã¢â‚¬ËœSaulÃ¢â‚¬â„¢
And finally, the moment the Shortlist scribes finally lost their minds:
5 Ã¢â‚¬Å“IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m loving the letters section Ã¢â‚¬’ reader after reader gushing about the fact that Shortlist is so brilliant!Ã¢â‚¬ Ã¢â‚¬ËœToriÃ¢â‚¬â„¢
