Carl Sacklen     Freelance Portfolio     Blog

I’m a student at the University of Chicago and I’ve previously studied in London. At UChicago I plan to study Political Science.

Here I am a staff writer at The Gate, which is the university’s undergraduate political review. I’m also heavily involved in both its Institute of Politics and the Maroon Project on Security and Terrorism.

Although my interests lie mostly in international economics and politics, having grown up in London I’m also hooked on British politics.

With these interests in mind, I’ve written numerous pieces for popular national publications such as Huffington Post, The Independent, and CapX. I sometimes also write on my blog. You can see my portfolio here.

TalkPolitics is a group I co-founded with the aim of tackling voter apathy. We publish articles to simplify politics and papers to suggest improvements to our democracy. From its beginings to March 2017 I was its editor-in-chief. We’ve been endorsed by many prominent indiviuduals in British politics.
