  A picture of a windblown Manx Bard  
  My Year as Manx Bard  
  In August 2017 the junior partner
was catapulted into the limelight
when she was inaugurated as the
Fourth Manx Bard.
 
  Never having done anything like this before, Sara did what she normally does when she doesn’t know something. She researched it, and found that Bards have a long and fascinating history. 
  My Year as Manx Bard is more than just a history of Bards and their origins, however. It provides information about the modern creation of Manx Bard, talks about Sara’s successes and failures, and includes some of the poems she wrote for the Bard’s various engagements.  
  The job of Manx Bard is to promote all aspects of the Isle of Man through poetry. It’s a little like the UK’s Poet Laureate but is awarded annually, so, this August the junior partner handed the robes and staff onto the fifth bard. This book tells of the ups and downs of her year in office.
