Natalia Terzic

I’m Natalia Terzic, and I’m a junior English major with minors in theatre and history. As an English major, I’m well-versed in literary analyses, but I also know my way around research papers and abstracts. One of my favorite pastimes is helping others go through their essays and make them the best they can possibly be, which makes the Writing Center the perfect environment for me. I’d love to help with your essay at any stage of the writing process, whether it be helping with organization once your first draft is already finished or helping you brainstorm ideas for a thesis. I hope to see you soon!

Hi, ladies and gents. I’m a sophomore creative writing major who is super excited to work in the Writing Center.

I’m most knowledgeable about MLA format, literary analysis papers, and research papers, but I would love to work with anything you have. If you don’t know what’s going on, that’s okay; we can figure it out together. Bring your work in at any stage, even if you feel like it’s not even in a stage yet. Come see me!
