Poetry Sunday

Each Sunday morning WCAI features a different local poet.

The Cape and Islands region has long provided inspiration to artists. Now WCAI is giving poetry a place in its weekly line-up. Every Sunday morning during Weekend Edition the work of a different local poet will be featured. Join us at 8:34 for Poetry Sunday.

Shelby Allen is a writer and actress living in Falmouth and Boston. She lost her voice in a hard-to-summarize trauma she went through at 17.  She got her voice back, sort of, but not her real voice where she could say what she means.  That happened through poetry (and theater). "Crack Willow" is the title poem of her book, subtitled Poems of Transformation.
