Hi, ladies and gents. I’m a sophomore creative writing major who is super excited to work in the Writing Center. Although my roots are in stories and scripts, I’ve done my fair share of academic writing to get here too. 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!




Clarice Tweeten

Hi! My name is Clarice. I am a junior English Major with an Aviation minor. Although this semester (Fall 2017) is my first working at the Writing Center, I have experience being a writer and editor for The Torch, writing countless essays for my English classes (I don’t even know how my Google Drive fits it all at this point) and I write some fanfiction in my freetime. Basically I have experience with a lot of different types of writing, so please don’t be shy; bring me whatever you have, and I will work on it with you as best I can. I am most familiar with MLA style and Chicago AP style writing formats, but using the resources in the Writing Center and Purdue OWL, I’m sure I can help you no matter what style your paper needs to be in. So please don’t be a stranger; I hope to see you soon!




Willow Walsh

Hello, all! I’m Willow, a Junior English major with triple minors in Environmental Studies, Political Science, and German. My favorite things to write are argumentative essays (writings with strong theses and claims), but I’ve dabbled in my fair share of research papers in the scientific fields. I deal mostly with MLA format; however, as a peer consultant, I’ve helped many people navigate the imminently mind-boggling APA and Chicago formats. Feel free to stop by and see me whether you’ve got a full draft or you’ve only just begun to think about the prompt!




Delilah Cortez

Hi everyone,

My name is Delilah Cortez, and I am a junior. I am a Political Science major with a Creative Writing minor. I’ve been working in the Writing Center since Spring 2016. My specialties include argumentative, persuasive, and research essays. I’ve also had much practice with literary analysis. I range from knowing how to write a professional paper to knowing how to write a creative writing paper as well. So don’t hesitate to ask me for help for either one because I have experience with both! I can’t wait to see what the rest of this year has in store for us. I look forward to working with you, so visit soon!




Heather Ide

Hi, everyone! My name is Heather and I’m a senior English major with a minor in Classics. I’m most familiar with argumentative and literary analysis-focused papers, but I’m happy to give feedback on any type of writing you bring in. I’m in Christ College as well, so I am familiar with Chicago style in addition to MLA, and I would love to see more CC students in the Writing Center! I also dabble a bit in creative writing (mostly fiction), so feel free to bring more creative assignments (or even personal projects) in as well. No matter what type of assignment, or whatever stage in the writing process you’re in, I’d love to talk about it with you and answer whatever questions or concerns you have.




Jackson Spanburg

Hey there, I’m Jackson! I am a Secondary Education major with a concentration in English. I absolutely love literature and am happy to help with any level of literary analysis. I am very proficient in MLA formatting, but am happy to help work through APA or Chicago. Whether we are in the same subject area, or something entirely different, I am always ready to help out with your work during any stage of the writing process.




Kyra Tessmann

Hello! My name is Kyra, and I am a sophomore English major with a minor in Spanish. This is my second semester working in the Writing Center, and my favorite part has been seeing the variety of people that come in and the diversity of classes that they’re in. I have a lot of experience helping students with argumentative essays (especially CC papers!), but I love helping with any type of assignment from trifold brochures to court case narratives to short stories. Feel free to make an appointment or drop in at any point in your writing process if you have questions, need a backboard for ideas, or just need a friendly nudge in the right direction!




Megan Gilliam

Hey, everyone! I’m Megan Gilliam, and I’m a senior English and Criminology double major. I have been working as a university writing consultant since Spring of 2016, and I love it! I have learned so much about the writing process and my own writing by working with other undergraduate and graduate students. Talking with someone who truly cares about your writing is so helpful, and that is why my job is so important. I have experience with, and enjoy, literary analyses, source analyses, and argumentative essays. I am proficient in MLA format, and am also familiar with APA format. I can work with you on any assignment, at any point in the writing process–from brainstorming to final revisions. I hope to work with you soon!
