Stephanie Holt is an editor by profession, with a specialisation in editing on Australian history, sport, art and culture. She joined the History Council of Victoria as Executive Officer in December 2023.
She was a teacher and manager for many years with RMIT University's Professional Writing and Editing programs. A former Meanjin editor, she currently works with Overland literary journal, and chairs the board of the Institute of Professional Editors, Australia New Zealand. Her abiding love of history took a Covid-era turn when she discovered forebears spanning four generations had settled in the goldfields area where she lives, so she is now immersed in local and family history explorations.
