Dave Lewis (born 1966) is a Welsh writer, poet and photographer based in Pontypridd, south Wales. He has always lived in Wales except for a short spell in Kenya in 1993-94. He has been published in a number of literary magazines all over the world and has published a number of books including: Layer Cake, Urban Birdsong, Sawing Fallen Logs For Ladybird Houses, Haiku, Roadkill and Reclaiming the Beat. His poetry is post-modernist and often anti-establishment, but can also be deeply confessional. He has also written three novels: a modern, crime thriller trilogy set in his native south Wales and East Africa. In 2007, along with Welsh writer John Evans, he set up and organised the first ever Welsh Poetry Competition, an international poetry competition, now in its eleventh year, aimed at encouraging and nurturing the wealth of creative writing talent that exists in Wales but often gets overlooked by the arts establishment.
