Cynthia Barnes

Journalist, editor and
content strategist

Cynthia Barnes has photographed a suicide bombing in Baghdad for Newsweek, sang karaoke with Tibetan cowboys for Slate, flirted with Billy Bob Thornton for Premiere, and joined an archaeological dig for National Geographic. 

Cynthia will do almost anything for a story. Throw a hand grenade? Why not? Eat a bug? Bon appétit. Dive out of an airplane? Geronimo!

What she won’t do is whiff deadlines, throw a hissy fit if her work is edited, or turn in a tired formula piece. If you want clean, compelling copy … on deadline … you want freelance journalist Cynthia Barnes.
