I’m an award winning journalist, author, and podcaster.

My debut non-fiction book, Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race, was published in summer 2017 to critical acclaim.

My podcast, About Race with Reni Eddo-Lodge, premiered in March 2018.

A Sunday Times bestseller, Why I’m won the 2018 Jhalak Prize. It has also been shortlisted for a British Book Award in the category of narrative non-fiction. The book earned a spot on the longlist for the prestigious Baillie Gifford Prize for non-fiction, and was shortlisted for the Books Are My Bag Readers Awards (non-fiction). Why I’m was voted non-fiction book of the year for 2017 by booksellers at both Foyles and Blackwells , and selected by actress Emma Watson as an Our Shared Shelf book club read in January 2017.

In  2018, I won a Bold Moves Award from Women in the Creative Industries for the publication of Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race. Prior to the publication of the book in 2015, I won a 30 to watch award from MHP Communications. In 2014, the Guardian listed me as one of the 30 most exciting people under 30 in digital media. I’ve also been listed in Elle Magazine’s 100 Inspirational Women list, and The Root’s 30 black viral voices under 30.

Outside of writing, you might find me reading (obviously), cycling, buying nail polish or trying to find good coffee. I live in London.
