Our Consultants

Our consultants are Delta students and have been trained to help their peers with their writing, reading and information technology needs. Your session with one of our consultants average about 20 - 30 minutes. 



Hello!  My name is Michael and I am a consultant here at the WRIT Center.  I have been working here since this last spring, and I have found it to be incredibly enjoyable and fulfilling work.  I have a deep passion for helping others to further their own creative abilities.  I am currently on course to transfer into SVSU's Political Science Program next year.  Also, I absolutely love the theater, specifically Postwar American Theater.  Some of my favorite plays include Suddenly, Last Summer, A View from a Bridge, and Picnic.  I am looking forward to seeing and reading your work this semester!


Hi, my name is Sarah! I love being a WRIT Center consultant because it combines my love for writing and helping others! I love to write about the humor of daily life and argumentative pieces. When I read, I love to read non-fiction books about different cultures and people. My passion for English, Spanish, and politics pushes me to pursue a career where I can use the power of language to improve the lives of others.


I'm Jesse, a WRIT Center consultant and computer programming major. This is my second year here at the WRIT. While my major may not be English, I have always had a passion for writing. I love working at the WRIT Center because it gives me an opportunity to share my passion with others and even help them to improve as writers! I’m a huge fan of classical literature, with a special love for classic horror. I especially love the works of H.P. Lovecraft. I write creatively as well, and hope to one day create a work of horror myself.



Hi, my name is Danielle and I am back at the WRIT center. When I decided to return to Delta College for a technical writing certificate, I wanted to return to the WRIT center to help students achieve their goals in reading and writing. I prefer fiction over any other kind of writing, and tend to spend my time writing my novel or reading. My favorite books: The Picture of Dorian Grey, Lolita, Game of Thrones, The Wheel of Time (Series), and Frankenstein.


Hi, I am Dan. I have been working at the WRIT Center for a year. It has proved to bring me more joy than I offer it in return. Recently returning to school, a full-time parent and student, I can relate to balancing a full schedule. Currently, I am working toward a mechanical engineering bachelor's and will transfer next year. While writing is not my first love, I enjoy to read and learn history, politics, philosophy, and world religion. Recent favorites include Bonhoeffer, C.S. Lewis, Herman Hesse, and all things Seuss. 


Hi, my name is Emma. This is my third year as a consultant at the WRIT Center. I love writing and helping students improve their writing. I am interested in almost everything, so I really enjoy reading papers. Last summer I played a neurotic writer in a short indie film. So, as a writer in real life and playing one in the movies, I am prepared to read your paper.  I mostly read the classics and non-fiction, but I am interested in all genres. Some of my favorite books are 1984 and Catcher in the Rye.



Hi, I’m Josie and this is my second semester working as a WRIT Center consultant. I love working at the WRIT Center for many reasons, but the main one is because writing is something I love to do. People always ask me what I enjoy writing, but I don’t really have a good answer because I like to write about anything and everything, in any format. Since I have a love for writing, I’m majoring in Journalism and I plan on transferring to either EMU or CMU in the fall of 2016. My favorite author is Edgar Allan Poe, and I specifically love his poetry. In my free time I enjoy writing (mostly blog posts), going to concerts/shows, and anything that involves Starbucks.  ​



I’m Sam, the big hairy one. I read lots of fiction, and write it as well in my spare time! I’ve been doing that for about fifteen years now and am in the beginning stages of writing a book, at least when I’m not distracted by a video game or a short story. The WRIT center is a rare chance for me to get paid for something that I enjoy doing. Shocking, right? I’ve been at Delta for a couple of years trying to find a niche (no luck on that yet), but the WRIT has at least given me a bit of a home here. Come stop by if you need help!



Hey, I’m Aubrie! I’m new to the WRIT Center. Although I’m going into Business Marketing, I’ve always had a love for English. I enjoy working at the WRIT because it allows me to utilize my love for helping people while expanding my own knowledge on writing. Reading has also always been a passion of mine. In my spare time I enjoy catching up on anything from The Great Gatsby to The Maze Runner.​



Hi, I'm Rebekah! I'm a WRIT center consultant and lover of writing. I'm an English and journalism major. I would like to be a book editor. I have had a passion for writing since a very young age, so I hope to write a book or two someday. I also really enjoy helping people, so this is a great place for me to work without feeling like I'm working.


Our History

 In 2008, the WRIT Center began as a volunteer service in the vending machine area of the S-Wing. The next year it became an established student service in the lower A concourse. It was known as the Writing Center Cafe and was designed to welcome student writers in a comfortable space. That same year it opened an online service for students who were unable to commute to main campus. To accommodate its growth, the Writing Center Cafe moved to the LLIC in 2010. Since then we have added reading services and begun to aid students with projects involving social media, digital storytelling, and other multi-modal components. We are now the WRIT Center (Writing, Reading, and Information Technology). During the 2012-2013 academic year, we held 2431 face-to-face sessions with 1216 students and completed 1293 online consultations for 706 students.
