Jane Edna Mohler Named 2020 Bucks County Poet Laureate

The Peace Valley resident read from her works Sun. Nov. 15 in an online ceremony hosted by Bucks County Community College 

Mohler, who began writing poetry as a child, rose to the top of 75 entries in the 44th annual contest, said Dr. Ethel Rackin, director of the poet laureate program administered by the college. The contest is sponsored by the Bucks County Commissioners.

After entering the prestigious competition many times and named a past runner-up, Mohler said she was honored to have been selected as the 2020 laureate. The author, counselor and teacher credited the local poetry community for encouraging her creativity.

She will later receive a proclamation from the County of Bucks and a $500 honorarium.

The judges also named three runners-up in the contest: Jenny Isaacs, Maureen Connolly and Melinda Rizzo. They were invited to read during the virtual reception, along with 2019 Bucks County Poet Laureate Mary Jo LoBello Jerome and preliminary judge Liz Chang.
