Jane Dards

Performance poet and published poet, based between Newtown and Llanidloes. I write in a wide range of styles, depending on what mood I'm in (or possibly on which of my multiple personalities is in the ascendant), including structured and free verse, serious and humorous, word pictures and witticisms. I have had serious poems published in various print and online magazines, including Orbis, Iota, nthposition, Envoi, and Seam, and also in the book Shropshire Butterflies (Fair Acre Press). My light verse has appeared in the competition pages of The Oldie magazine and The Spectator, in the webzine LightenUp Online, and has even been published in the Radio Times. I have performed my work at a range of venues in Powys and beyond. I was a finalist in the 2011 John Tripp Award for Spoken Poetry, organised by Literature Wales. I host a regular open mic evening at the Mid Wales Arts Centre in Caersws, Powys.
