Writing Center Staff

      

Peer Writing Consultants

are students with varying backgrounds and majors who have proven themselves to be strong writers and have been trained to help other students with their writing projects. Some are earning credit through English 185, some hold work-study positions, and a few even volunteer their time.

NOTE: hover over this...

Lead Writing Consultants

Lead consultants are experienced writers and readers, who hold varied degrees and have extensive experience in writing-intensive fields.

They help to train our peer consultants, hold individual conferences with students, create many of our writing center materials, and field questions about grammar and punctuation.

The Directors

Dodie Forrest and Laura May are die-hard writing center enthusiasts, writing instructors, writers, and coaches for the staff of consultants.

Give them a call any time you have a question or comment about the Writing Center.
