C.Jean Blain is many things; an educator; a writer; a performer but above all she is a storyteller. Her work is mostly shaped by the stories and legacies that she has witnessed and those she has inherited.
She has received residencies and fellowships from Hedgebrook, VONA Voices, the National Endowment for Humanities (NEH), and The Watering Hole. Her most recent work can be found in Tribes Magazine, Mer Vox, Sukoon Magazine of Arab themed Art & Literature, , NYU Abu Dhabi's Electra Street Journal, and elsewhere. .
