Kari-Anne Innes

Hello! My name is Kari-Anne Innes, and one of my roles at the university is assistant director Writing Center. I joined Valparaiso University in 2012 as program director for the Arts and Entertainment Administration master’s program and a lecturer in the Graduate School and Core. My research background is in theatre, performance studies, gender studies, and theology. My professional background is in theatre arts, directing, and arts administration. I am most experienced with research papers, literary analysis, business writing, and MLA and Chicago style. I can work with you in all areas of writing, including understanding assignments, drafting, and revision. I recommend making regular appointments to work through all stages of the writing process. I look forward to working with you!



Hello everyone! My name is Mike, and I’m a second-year graduate student in the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program here at VU. I got my Bachelor’s degree from Taylor University where I majored in professional writing and minored in psychology. I enjoy working on outlines and pre-writing techniques as well as reflective papers and literature reviews. I am most familiar with APA format, as that’s what my program primarily uses for all assignments. However, I am also familiar with MLA and Chicago Manual of Style. I am happy to help with those formats as well. It never hurts to have another pair of eyes reading through a paper you’ve written, and I’m happy to take a look and offer suggestions. No matter where you’re at with your assignment, I’ll be here to help!
