Storyteller and champion spoken word poet

Mary is a spoken word poet from Edmonton. She was captain of 2011 Edmonton Poetry Slam Team which won the National Championship at the Canadian Festival of Spoken Word. Mary was also voted Most Valuable Poet of the 2011 Canadian Festival of Spoken Word. She was a finalist in the 2011 Edmonton Poetry Laureate competition, as well as a finalist at the 2011 Canadian Individual Slam Championship. Mary was the winner of the 2008 National CBC Poetry Faceoff. A storyteller at heart, her writing has been called dynamic and visceral. Mary has presented her unique style of spoken word throughout Alberta, British Columbia, and Washington. In addition to her live performances, Mary's work has been played on CBC Radio One's Radio Active and the Key of A, and CKUA's The Road Home.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
