Jessica Skinner is an Austin-based freelance writer and event planner available for hire and/or contract work.
In addition to my ongoing Hungry Hearted project, I have written for SXSW Music, Austin Monthly, Covert Curiosity, and Austinist. I currently help Movability Austin spread the word about mobility options and growing pains in Austin.
My extracurricular activities encompass music/writing, farm-to-table potlucks, event planning, and reclaimed wood projects. Since 2010, I’ve hosted an informal potluck series called “Sunday Suppers,” which has steadily evolved into a monthly soiree centralized around a theme-ingredient challenge often paired with a backyard movie screening. In 2011, I organized an unofficial SXSW party. In 2012, my boyfriend and I launched HOMEGRAIN, a side project making chalkboards with reclaimed wood for custom orders.
I am very interested in hearing about ideas and working with enthusiastic, creative teams.
