Robin Farmer

Robin Farmer is an award-winning journalist and seasoned storyteller. Nearly every major award she has won involves stories about young people. Her accolades include selection as one of 12 American reporters for an eight-month Knight-Wallace Journalism Fellowship at the University of Michigan, numerous national and Virginia Press Association awards and a monthlong residency at the Virginia Center for Creative Arts in the fall of 2017.

Robin directed, produced and wrote a short film for the 48 Hour Film Project. Her screenplays focus on young females finding their voices to advocate for marginalized communities. She is adapting one of her scripts into a debut novel. This work-in-progress led to Robin’s selection for the 2016 Djerassi Resident Artists Program — the oldest and largest colony of its kind in the West — where she spent a month working on her project in a cinematic setting on a ranch in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

Her short story, The History Lesson, was included in River City Secrets: Stories from Richmond. Featuring Richmond’s historic and popular locations, the anthology was published in 2016.

Robin is a board member of the James River Writers, a nonprofit connecting writers and readers in central Virginia. She also interviews authors for The Writer’s Voice, an audio program offered by Virginia Voice, a volunteer program using technology to connect individuals with vision impairments to information.
