Barclay Ballard


After graduating with a degree in English Literature from the University of Warwick, Barclay worked for a year in outdoor advertising. A keen music fan, Barclay previously reviewed singles for a Midlands-based music website while studying. He quit work to travel around Europe for 6 weeks, before deciding it was time to return to reality. When he isn't freelance writing, Barclay enjoys seeing his hopes and dreams inevitably crushed while supporting Tottenham Hotspur.
