Megan Ann Ward is a poet newly based in Montreal after being a fixture in the Victoria spoken word community for the last 3 years.
She has been on the Victoria Slam Team which went to 2010 CFSW in Ottawa, recently took the title of 2011 Victoria Slam Champion, competed at the Canadian Individual Slam Championships, was part of the 2011 Victoria Spoken Word Festival, and has performed naked on multiple occasions.
Megan has been writing poetry and prose since her grandma gave her a pink journal when she was 8 years old, and started performing about 4 years ago. She writes from a place of passion, of raw and heartfelt honesty. She tells the story of her battles with addiction, of hospitals and the streets, of losing and finding faith, of falling in love and of heartbreak, and sometimes even writes about sex. Her comfort food is baked lasagne, and she would love to hear your stories over coffee after the show.
