Tanya Akrofi
Writer and Storyteller

When I was a little girl, my mum had a book called "Your Word is Your Wand": a book of positive affirmations, it showed how our words shape our world. It started a lifelong passion for me. 

I fell in love with words and the stories they create. 

In my work, I combine my love of performance, with creative writing. In mixing my Ghanaian oral heritage with western storytelling traditions, I create articles, essays and community events, which give people the chance to see and share the human experience - in all its messy beauty.

We are all driven by the stories we tell ourselves and others. By taking conscious control of the words we use everyday, we can create more fulfilling lives and communities - basically, we can make some magic!
