Hi! My name is Clarice. I am a Senior English major with a minor in Aviation. I have been a Writing Center Consultant for two full semesters now. My favorite part of the job is getting to meet all of you guys and getting to work with you to strengthen your writing! Come in to see me with whatever kind of paper or assignment you have no matter how complete it is or how good/bad you think it is. I’ll do my best to work with you to get your writing to a place where you’re proud of what you’ve accomplished.
Hello, all! I’m Willow, a Senior English major with two minors in German and Creative Writing. 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’m also drawn to different forms of creative writing, and I’d love to talk with you about your pieces. 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!
Hello! My name is Jessica and I am an English and Secondary Education double major with a minor in Creative Writing. I am also a member of Christ College (the honors college) and am part of the early entry graduate program here at Valpo (feel free to ask me about it!). I love helping with drafting, idea generation, and outlines, but I’m also happy to help you at any point in the writing process. MLA format is the format I am most familiar with, but I am also available to help with APA or Chicago style. In my spare time, I am President of Sigma Tau Delta, the English honor society here at Valpo, and I work three library-based jobs. You can catch me in the Archives and Special Collections on the third floor, at the circulation desk on the second floor, or here in the Writing Center on the first floor. Feel free to stop by!
Hello! My name is Jessica and I am a sophomore English major with a minor in art. This is my first year in the center as a consultant and I am beyond excited to get to help writers like you on campus! There is a special place in my heart for creative writing, both fiction and nonfiction. I enjoy writing narrative essays, short stories, and poetry the most. Being an art minor, I also have a lot of experience writing art analysis papers and I would love to see more of them come into the center! I also have experience in many different types of writing such as argumentative essays, research papers, and literary analysis papers. I am most knowledgeable in MLA format but have experience in APA as well and would be more than happy to help figure the formatting out with you! I love brainstorming sessions so whether you just got a prompt, are on the final draft, or anywhere in-between feel free to stop in for a visit! I hope to see you soon!
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.
Hello! My name is Kyra, and I am a junior English major with a minor in Spanish. This is my third year working in the Writing Center, and my favorite part is seeing the progress that you all make as writers. 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!
Hi! My name is Veronica. I’m a Sophomore Creative Writing Major with a double minor in music and Spanish, and I’m also a Christ College student. This is my first semester working in the Writing Center, after interning here last year. As my major suggests, I would love to work with you on a creative piece, but I’m also more than happy to work with you on academic papers regardless of the topic. Whether you’re brainstorming, want a set of eyes on your final draft, or anywhere in between, I look forward to talking about your writing with you!
Hi everyone! My name is Beth and I’m an accounting and finance double major. This is my first year as a writing consultant and I am so excited to help students become better writers! One of my favorite things to focus on in writing is organization. No matter what type of paper your writing or wherever you are in the writing process, it is always important to have your thoughts organized. With that being said, I am available to help with all types of writing and during any point of the writing stage. I am looking forward to helping students with anything and everything! Feel free to schedule an appointment with me online, I hope to see you soon!
Hello! My name is Ella, I’m a new consultant here at the Writing Center, and I’m really looking forward to working with you all! I’m a sophomore Digital Media and French double major, and I’m also in Christ College. CC freshmen, please feel free to book an appointment with me Thursday evenings, even if you don’t have anything on paper yet! I’d be happy to brainstorm ideas and help organize your thoughts on the philosophers/novels you’re reading. Because of my experience in Christ College, most of the writing I do for school is in Chicago Style, but I’m also familiar with MLA. My goal as a consultant in the Writing Center is to help take some of the anxiety out of the writing process—it can be really stressful if you don’t know where to start or if you have professor feedback but you don’t know how to fix things, and I want to make those kinds of struggles easier to handle. I’m looking forward to meeting new people and helping make your writing great this semester!
Hello! My name is Sadie and I am a Physics and French double major with a History Minor. As odd of a combination as my interests seem to be, I have a particular passion for learning and writing in many areas! This is my first semester as a consultant as I was an intern last semester. I would love to help with any genre of writing whether academic or personal and to have the opportunity to learn along with you! I cannot wait to see your writing process!
