Focusing on tales from African and Caribbean folklore, Jan Blake’s stories introduced Write Idea Festival’s audiences to shape-shifters, lovers, wise women, foolish men and cunning animals.

This was a free event, programmed by Filotico Arts as part of Writeidea, London’s only free literary festival.

“Jan will transport you, taunt you, seduce you, wrap you in the rhythm of her words, shock you, hold you in the hearts holy places and bring you safely home” Ashley Ramsden, storyteller
