The Bard was founded in December 2019 by Isabel Milford and Sarah Haque. We sat in a lecture that posed the question: “How many of you have been published?” When almost no one raised their hand, we thought, alright, we’ll do it ourselves then.

The Bard is a place for creatives at City, University of London to showcase their talents. We publish various multimedia content, including: short stories, poetry, essays, articles, art, photography, videos and music.

Virginia Woolf

For a long time I thought I was a poet, but that’s a high title to claim.

Let us publish you.
