Enjoy this archival podcast featuring some of today’s most relevant LDS poets:

IT’S THE 12TH EPISODE of the Segullah Podcast “Words Fall In,” and I am so happy to have interviewed the four winners of our 2019 Poetry Contest. Please see the Journal tab to read their poems or follow this link.

Sarah Dunster, Melody Newey Johnson, Kathryn Knight Sonntag, and Dayna Patterson all discuss their poems and the craft of writing.

I split the podcast into two sections. Part One are interviews with Sarah and Melody. In Part Two, I speak with Kathryn and Dayna. Just click on them to listen! I edited out a lot of laughing and getting to know one another so you could hear them waxing eloquent about their love of words. Thanks to our winners and congratulations! IT WAS A JOY TO INTERVIEW YOU ALL!

About Melonie Cannon

Melonie has surrounded herself with beautiful words for as long as she can remember. This led her to find a home with Segullah after writing an essay published in the May 2006 Segullah issue. She was invited to join the staff and has been a part of Segullah in various capacities since, including being the creator of the “Words Fall In” podcast.  She received her M.Ed from the University of Utah and was a certified Secondary English teacher before becoming a Mom of four. Over the years, her focus has been on natural healing modalities and becoming a sacred sound healing practitioner with a focus on the drum, rhythm, voice, and vibration. She is finishing her PH.D. in theology and metaphysics to further these studies and help women to connect to the divine within themselves.
