Male human. Columnist, spoken word performer and writer of creative non-fiction. Answers to the name of Adam and also any noise that sounds like someone saying Adam. Over time I’ve discovered that a lot of things sound like someone saying Adam.
I am one half of The Real Story, an online publisher and reading series, working to raise the profile of and nurture emerging creative non-fiction talent in the UK. My writing and audio recordings can be found at The Real Story, BBC Online, This Is Not TV, Prestwich & Whitefield Local, The Drabble, MacGuffin, in the National Flash Fiction Day archives and on the Tapes & Tales podcast. I performed at Manchester’s many live literature nights, including Bad Language, The Real Story, Verbose, Tales of Whatever and First Draft and have also appeared on Evidently Radio. In July of 2016 I once drew some robots, which appeared on pages 52 to 57 of The MagPi magazine, as part of an article that I will NEVER understand. In October of 2016 I read at the Manchester Literature Festival as one of the supporting essayists for the headliner, Horatio Clare.
“Adam Farrer has the rare talent of writing funny stories that are actually funny. He can also write a deft line of prose. Fans of David Sedaris, get on this.” – MacGuffin.
“I just don’t get why you’d want to tell people all this private stuff.” – My dad.
