Farah Joan Fard

I deliver content to elevate education and empathy. My writing has been published in Marie Claire, Vanity Fair, Women’s Health, Paste, Bustle, and more. I’ve provided commentary for film and music podcasts, was previously a regular contributor to The Village Voice’s annual Pazz & Jop poll and review, and have been working in producing and strategy for digital content since graduating from Emerson College in 2009.

Beginning my writing career a music journalist, I’ve interviewed artists such as Terri Lyne Carrington, Blues Traveler, Fiction Plane, Karmin, Clint Mansell, and Creed Bratton, while also covering stories for tours including Janelle Monae, The Police, She & Him, Muse, and Kimbra.

I enjoy painting and performing in my spare time. You may view my recent clips below.
