Student publishes poetry book, library helps



Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi senior criminal justice major Trevor Wulff published an original poetry book, “Fragments,” this semester.

“Fragments” is the second poetry book Wulff has published. It uses styles of both Romanticism and Existentialism with bits of reflection through dark and optimistic tones and can be purchased on for $10.99.

“I wanted to write the book because it’s a passion completely aside from my criminal justice career path,” Wulff said. “It’s a way that I not only share my inner self but the art that poetry is and the outlet that it is as well.”

Wulff writes poetry whenever he feels stressed and overwhelmed, allowing him to vent. He said he hopes people connect with some of the poems much like he has.

“They’re very intimate,” Wulff said. “Focusing on love, heartbreak, loneliness, mental health, memories and more. I think that we can all find a piece of fragment that we all see in ourselves and even others.”

Wulff received help throughout the production of the book from the Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi library. Jeff Janko, library information specialist, assisted Wulff whenever possible, including taking the book’s cover photo.

“Mr. Janko not only took and edited the cover photo, but coached me on where I wanted to take the book, some minor formatting and just overall inspired me to reach my goal,” Wulff said.

Janko received his bachelors and master’s degree for the Island University and has been an adjunct instructor for more than 15 years so encouraging students to get the most out of their education has always been important to him.

“I am glad that I could offer Trevor encouragement and help him with his book cover. The cover was a collaboration between the two of us. I am always glad to be a part of projects our students are involved in,” Janko said.

Janko said he felt privileged that Trevor asked him for his help and advice on the book and was happy to use the opportunity to use his talents in photography.
