About me

Hola! I’m Flossie, a digital content producer from London. That includes writing, editing and a dabbling in videography. I graduated from the University of Bristol in 2016 with a degree in English Literature; since then I’ve done stints at the BBC developing arts films and quite a lot of book publishing. I’ve worked on fiction, through to arts books, historical, biography and more. I’ve recently backpacked solo around the world, to find myself etc, which may or may not make me a more interesting person. I like words a lot. I like designing things, too. I like theatre and feminism and photography. I really like going to the pub. Connect with me on LinkedIn at: https://www.linkedin.com/in/flossie-skelton-b11b4011a/
