Hello, my name is Jess Malcolm and I am a journalist based in Sydney, Australia. Welcome to my professional website.
I have had work published in The Guardian, ABC, Sunraysia Daily, The Citizen and The Junction.
Some of my articles investigate bee brokerage, seaweed as a potential climate change mitigator, biogas technology, the 2019 federal election, Australia’s changing wine industry police injustice and urban farming.
I hold a Master of Journalism from the University of Melbourne and graduated with a high distinction average. I also hold a Bachelor of Arts in Politics and Sociology with a distinction average.
I was awarded the 2020 Student Journalist of the Year in the annual Ossie Awards which recognise the best student journalism from around the country. I also won the Monash Climate Change Communication Research Hub Prize for best climate change reporting.
I am a recipient of the Walkley Foundation grant for regional/ rural reporting this year.
While I am an old-fashioned sod with a deep fondness for print journalism, I love audio and podcasting just as much.
I have spent some time broadcasting with Student Youth Network (SYN), hosting the breakfast radio show ‘Get Cereal’. I have also had work published with All the Best and FBI Radio.
