edited-meHi there, I’m Stephanie Phillips, a London-based, NCTJ-trained journalist and freelance copywriter.

I specialise in music journalism but I also cover race, feminism, pop culture, technology, lifestyle, fashion, mental health, and politics for Noisey, Bandcamp, i-D, London in Stereo, gal-dem, Maximum Rocknroll, The Quietus, BFI and more. You can view my full portfolio at Contently.

I take on copywriting work, online production shifts for national newspapers, and I create content for the trade sector. My work in this area is focused on the packaging and food industry, and has been featured in outlets such as Inside Drinks, Inside Food, ECigIntelligence, and Lombard.

My writing is featured in three anthologies. I wrote an essay on Phil Spector’s mistreatment of women for Under My Thumb: Songs that Hate Women and the Women Who Love Them, edited by Rhian E. Jones and Eli Davies. I also contributed several essays to Women Who Rock, edited by Evelyn McDonnell. I will also be featured in the upcoming edition of On Bodies, an collection of writing about our relationships with our bodies, out on 3 of Cups Press. I am currently working on a non-fiction book project focusing on a modern music icon for ForeEdge/UPNE Press.
