Marilyn Kallet, a Knoxville poet and professor of English, recently spoke with WUOT 91.9 FM about the healing power of words and what she has learned from watching others discover it. For years, she has taught others to use words to help them overcome personal trauma. She’s held poetry workshops for victims of domestic violence, children who have endured various forms of heartbreak and loss, and for a women’s prison in Oklahoma. Listen to the interview.
