Local English Professor Publishes Third Poetry Collection

Posted in

Sheridan College English Professor Dr. Jane Wohl will be signing copies and reading from her recently published collection of poems entitled “Learning from Old Masters”, next Wednesday afternoon from 3 to 4:30 atrium of the Whitney Academic Center at Sheridan College. The event is free and open to the public.

According to a news release issued by the college, the collection, the third volume of poetry from Dr. Wohl, features poems spanning nearly three decades, and reflects on Wohl’s experience of faith and spirituality. Wohl said “I think that part of what poetry is about is trying to put into words those experiences which we can’t put into words, and that for me is a spiritual quest.”

Wohl began teaching English classes at Sheridan College in 1983 and enters her final semester of full-time teaching at the college. She has received numerous awards for her past work and was awarded the Wyoming Arts Council Fellowship in both 1996 and 2006.
