Male human. Humorist, 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 the Managing Editor 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 Squawk Back, 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 regularly perform at Manchester’s many live literature nights and have appeared at events across the north including Sheffield Doc/Fest, Stories at The Storey, the Rochdale Literature and Ideas Festival and the Manchester Literature Festival. To protect me from myself, all essays/stories vetted and scrutinised by the awe-inspiring brain of Holly Aszkenasy prior to release.
“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.
