I'm a boy from Coonabarabran, studying and working in Sydney. After that, who knows?


Alex Tighe

I'm a Sydney-based writer, editor, and journalist, formerly the Associate Editor of Neighbourhood Paper. In 2018 I won the University of Sydney’s Wentworth Medal essay prize, and in 2019 I will be the ABC/Kidney Health Australia’s inaugural Mark Colvin Scholar.

I graduated from Honours in Philosophy with first class at the University of Sydney, where I'm also partway through a Law degree. My thesis was on human rights and their role in global justice, and won the John Anderson Prize for Best Thesis in Philosophy IV.

I was raised in Coonabarabran, NSW.
