Yes, that’s my actual name.

About Actual Ar

Hi! I’m Ar. It’s a family nickname of sorts.  I’m a freelance writer and artist from the UK. I’m also a parent, rugby player, narrative design novice, curly hair owner and gamer.

Writing and being creative is who I am, and this is where I get to share some of that with the world. Over the last few years, I’ve tried to keep all the branches of my work separate, but that’s kind of exhausting, so I’ve streamlined things a bit with this website.

There are some links around the site that will take you to some of my external projects. Check them out if you’d like to order some art or design work, visit my Ko-Fi page or find me on social media.

Other things to know about me

I have a lot of different interests and ideas, just like most other human beings. That’s why you won’t find me working within one particular genre on my website. You’ll find a mix of lifestyle content, advice for fellow freelancers, and tech and gaming features alongside a bit of creative writing here. You might even find the odd illustration or two if I feel like mixing things up!

Aside from my own website, I also work as a freelance games writer, covering news, video game reviews, interviews and features. You can find out more about that side of things in my content portfolio. Or you can visit my Muck Rack journalist profile to see my latest articles and contact me about features or work opportunities.

Games writing and narrative design

I’m passionate about developing my skills as a narrative designer and am working towards that as a long-term goal. You can view some of my game writing and narrative work in my creative portfolio. For more information about that side of things, feel free to get in touch with me on Twitter or on Discord at Ar#5292.

Want to work together or get in touch?

Brilliant. I love a good collaboration. Please read my disclosure and terms and all that jazz though, I won’t just write any old rubbish. Well, not unless you’re going to offer me thousands to do so, in which case, I’ll consider my stance. Anyhow, feel free to email me at [email protected] or [email protected]. You can also contact me via social media or on Discord.

Buy me a cuppa

You can buy me a one-off cuppa or subscribe to my Ko-Fi page if you’d like to receive regular doodle-based and other creative treats, or you can just be an all-around good egg and buy me a cuppa if you like. You’ll have my everlasting gratitude and love either way!
