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

I specialise in covering the UK DIY punk scene but I also enjoy writing about other topics such as race, feminism, pop culture, lifestyle, fashion, mental health and politics. My work has been featured in outlets such as Noisey, Bandcamp, BFI and Alternative Press. You can view my full portfolio at Contently.

I also do some copywriting for charity websites, create content for the trade sector and lend my skills to content marketing.

My work has been featured in two 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: An Illustrated History, edited by Evelyn McDonnell.

I’m occasionally asked to give public talks on the subjects of race and gender in the music industry. If you are interested in booking me for future events please get in touch.
