Alyx Gorman is the editorial director of Time Out Australia, and the fashion editor of the Saturday Paper. She balances a career in lifestyle journalism with a tendency towards cynicism, with varied results. Alyx has worked for Elle Magazine, the Mamamia Women's Network, Fairfax Media and Oyster Magazine. She has written for The Guardian, Meanjin and i-D. Her greatest achievement was winning a beauty writing award for a story about colonics; because it allows her to claim that she literally pulls success from her rectum.
