About

Well known for mind-altering poetry with an almost music hall edge, Mark Gwynne Jones mixes humour and poignancy with great skill (Ian Daley, Route).

Winner of four festival fringe awards for Best Spoken Word, Mark has published five collections of poetry and appeared in numerous anthologies. Reviewing his collection PsychicBread, Vicki Holman declared it ‘contagious, gritty, and sometimes startlingly sensitive.’

When resident poet for London’s parks, Mark explored what is meant by ‘common ground’ in 21st century Britain; in 2012 he wrote and recorded a collection of poems for his native Peak District, Lyric in Limestoneand in 2015 toured Southern India and later the UK with Indian poet and playwright, Mamta Sagar. Currently Mark is creating a soundscape of the Peak District ahead of the 70th anniversary of the Peak National Park, and is about to take on a residency at Kielder Forest and Observatory.
