Mim Skinner

 I'm a writer and social enterprise founder living in County Durham.
I've published two books, Jailbirds/The Prison Teacher (2019) and Living Together (2022). Jailbirds was one of Stylist's top 20 books for 2020 and was optioned by BBC Studios for a drama series.
I have also written for The Guardian, The Sunday Times Style, Elle Magazine, The I Paper, Huffington Post, RED magazine, The Plough, High Life North and New Writing North. In 2019 I won a place on Elle Magazine's list of 50 Gamechangers of Now for my writing and campaign work.
REfUSE, the multi-award winning social enterprise I co-founded in 2015 works to prevent food waste through grass roots community action and education.
I'm available for speaking, events, panels and workshop facilitation.

All work requests though my agent Nelle Andrews please.

At the moment I'm thinking and writing about food systems, faith, grief, ADHD, sister relationships and our family's ongoing community living experiment on a County Durham farm.
