Jun 14 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

SHERIDAN — Sheridan County Fulmer Public Library will sponsor a free writing workshop by Lori Howe on June 14 from 6-8 p.m. in the Inner Circle.

Howe’s program, “All the Water in Wyoming: Poems and Personal Essays” will allow participants to write on the meanings of water in Wyoming, whether via poetry or personal essay. Your knowledge, memories and thoughts are the ink on the page in this workshop, which features a dedicated issue of “Clerestory: Poems of the Mountain West.”

When participants leave the workshop, they will have a strong framework and approach for writing creatively about matters of great importance to them as Wyoming citizens, drawing on their own knowledge and experience to add their voices critically and meaningfully to ongoing, community and state conversations — some, through the venue of publication.

Howe is the author of “Cloudshade: Poems of the High Plains” and “Voices at Twilight: A Poet’s Guide to Wyoming Ghost Towns.” She has taught English and creative writing workshops for the last decade at the University of Wyoming and Laramie County Community College.

She holds a bachelor’s in English and Spanish, a master’s in English, a Master of Fine Arts in creative writing from UW and is a doctoral candidate in literacy studies at UW, with a focus on critical thinking skills and creativity for struggling writers.

She teaches workshops for the Wyoming Latina project and the Wyoming Writing Project, and has been a guest poet on Wyoming Public Radio. She is editor in chief of “Clerestory: Poems of the Mountain West,” an online literary magazine dedicated to showcasing the work of Wyoming writers.

“Water in Wyoming” is presented by the Wyoming Humanities Council as part of its ThinkWY Road Scholars Tours program. The Wyoming Humanities Council provides public humanities-based programs in partnership with local organizations and is funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities with additional support from private donors and the Wyoming Legislature.

City to host meet, greet of city administrator candidates @ Sheridan College Edward A. Whitney Academic Center atrium.
Sep 20 @ 4:30 pm – 6:30 pm

SHERIDAN — The city of Sheridan will host a meet and greet of candidates seeking the city administrator position on Tuesday from 4:30-6:30 p.m. at the Sheridan College Edward A. Whitney Academic Center atrium.

Candidates will be available to meet area residents and discuss the role of the city administrator.

At a meeting earlier this month, Sheridan City Council members and attendees spoke via teleconference to John Hodgson, the senior consultant for The Prothman Group, regarding the role of the city’s administrator position.

The Prothman Group was hired by the city of Sheridan to lead job search efforts for the position that was approved last year.

During the discussion, Hodgson explained the process his company and the city plan to use to hire the administrator. Once the field is narrowed down to five applicants, there will be an opportunity for the community to meet the candidates in an informal setting — the purpose of Tuesday’s gathering.

At that time, city officials said, the group will provide a short biography of each of the candidates. This allows community members to provide feedback on each of the candidates.

The following day, the council, key community members, selected staff members and others will conduct interviews with the candidates. Later, council members will select the candidate to take the position.

No timeline was given for when the position is expected to be filled.

The city administrator’s salary is listed at $105,870 – $161,513 annually, plus benefits; the position was approved by the city last fall.
