Barry Wightman

Essayist

Barry Wightman is a writer - he's a novelist, blogger, business writer, book reviewer - a multi-purpose scribe. He is also a professional voiceover talent, which means that he gets to talk big for happy radio, TV and corporate clients. The Vermont College of Fine Arts recently awarded him an MFA—he thinks that’s pretty cool. And he leads an aging rock 'n roll band, the Outta State Plates, which means that he believes that, with a guitar in his hand, just about anything is possible.
