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 awards include her selection as one of 12 American reporters for a year long Knight-Wallace Journalism Fellowship at the University of Michigan and numerous Virginia Press Association awards.

Her screenplays all address young females struggling to find their voice and stand in their truth. She has adapted one of her screenplays into a debut novel. This work-in-progress has 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 will spend a month working on her project in a cinematic setting on a ranch in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

She directed, produced and co-wrote her first short film for the 48 Hour Film Project during the summer of 2010.

Robin is a board member of the James River Writers, a nonprofit connecting writers and readers in central Virginia.
