marilyn_02.jpg

On this episode of Dialogue, our guest is Knoxville poet Marilyn Kallet.   For years, Kallet has been teaching others how to use the magic of language to help them overcome personal trauma.  She takes her poetry workshops to victims of domestic violence, to children who have endured various forms of heartbreak and loss and even to a women's prison in Oklahoma.  She joins host Matt Shafer Powell to talk about the healing power of words and what she's learned from watching others discover it.
