That’s really what storytellers are, oral historians. Our major job,
if we’re doing our job properly, is to listen to people older than us and to talk to people younger than us.

Krystle Mullin


  • Mullin’s distinct raspy voice may well be taller than she is (she stands only 5’3) but a lack of vertical height hasn’t stopped this spoken word artist from reaching unimaginable heights in only one year.
  • Toured across Canada as a member of the Toronto Slam Team.
  • Implemented a program that integrates spoken word poetry into Ontario high schools.
  • Mullin’s style and rhythm borrow from folk, hip-hop, and hillbilly sensibilities.
