Hi! My name is Katherine. I am a Junior English major, but I enjoy working with students coming from a variety of different majors. While I like writing argumentative essays and literary analysis, I work with all types of essays. I help writers at any stage in the writing process, including brainstorming, organization, or finding sources. Though I am most familiar with creating citations for MLA, I am also always willing to help with APA or Chicago format. I love having discussions about writing with the students who come into The Writing Center, and I hope to see you in our corner of the library this year!
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 Creech 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!

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!

I am currently writing for the Torch as well as working in the Writing Center and at Founders. I’ve written papers in APA, MLA, and Chicago so I have knowledge about these formats.

I look forward to working with you and hope to see you soon!
