Knoxville Poet Laureate Marilyn Kallet Shares Poetry for the New Year

Marilyn Kallet

Whether or not you celebrate a new beginning on New Year’s Day, you may agree that the day marks the end of the winter holidays and the beginning of the coldest and darkest time of the year. WUOT’s Chrissy Keuper invited Knoxville’s Poet Laureate Marilyn Kallet to help warm us with some poetry for the New Year. 



Chrissy served as WUOT's News Director and host of monthly public affairs talk show Dialogue from late 2021 to early 2023. Her first job with the station was as weekend student announcer while earning her bachelor's in Anthropology from the University of Tennessee. She had previously been the station's local host for NPR's Morning Edition and All Things Considered news programs; occasionally filled in as host for WUOT's Morning and Afternoon Concerts; and won multiple awards for her interviews, feature stories, and Dialogue.
