Over the years Marilyn A. Hudson has shared stories in schools and libraries across the state and to
audiences in many other locales.Honing a sense of the dramatic she delivered tales full of energy, theater, and grand play. As a professional librarian she found a steady audience with children, teens, teachers, and parents. Blending a love of stories with literacy she advocated for the use of stories in classrooms, in homes, and in many other settings. She has traveled the state over the last decade sharing stories whereever she could get people to stop long enough to listen.
She has been a featured teller at three "Tellabrations!", at the OKC Zoo, Orr Farm, The OKC Arts Festival, Wintertales! (Oklahoma Olio Concert), the Lawton Community Theater, various churches, schools, and libraries. Her original story was featured on the CD "Autumn Leaves & Stories All Around" (2002) produced by the Oklahoma Territory Tellers. 

She conducted workshops at Encyclo-Media, Oklahoma Library Association, and for "Storytelling 101" programs sponsored by the Metropolitan Library System of Oklahoma City and County. Many of the handouts for these are on her blog "OKLAHOMA TELLERS". She assisted in several programs designed to instill a love of reading, books, learning, and stories in county families. As a School Library Media Specialist she created what may be the first tall tale female of Oklahoma," Annie Oklahoma". Her story appeared in the first "Red Dirt Book Festival Anthology" (2003). As an inspirational speaker she used stories to share timeless wisdom from many cultures.
