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. 

 


Inney
My name is Inney (in-ay) and I'm happily employed as a WRIT center consultant as of Fall 2014. I love to write across forms, having experimented with fiction, poetry, non-fiction, screenwriting and fortune cookie labels. After spending two years in film school, I dropped out and moved to Los Angeles for a year. A desire to finish college brought me back to Michigan. Favorite books (fiction): Infinite Jest, The Executioner's Song, Jane Eyre, Frankenstein, Siddhartha, On the Road, The World According to Garp, The Marriage Plot, The Crying of Lot 49.

 
Miranda
I'm Miranda, a WRIT Center consultant and English major. I love working at the WRIT Center because it gives me the opportunity to help someone, whether it's with writing a paper or reading a text book. It's also helped me to become more involved with my peers at school. In my spare time, I love to read and write. Some of my favorite books are The Fault in Our Stars, The Maze Runner, and Divergent. My favorite kind of writing is creative fiction and I hope to someday publish a book of my own.


Jesse
I'm Jesse, a WRIT Center consultant and computer programming major. While my major might not be English, I have always had a passion for writing. I enjoy writing creatively and hope to share my stories with the world. I love working at the WRIT Center because it gives me an opportunity to share this passion with others and even help them to improve as writers! My favorite books include the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, the works of Stephen King, and the Harry Potter series. One day, maybe I'll be able to add a book of my own to this list.

 
Katelyn
 My name is Katelyn and I'm currently completing my second and last year here at Delta. Next Fall, I hope to transfer to Michigan State and major in Creative Writing. I've been writing creatively for years, including completing two full length novels in the last few years. Recently, I haven't read as much as I wanted to, but my all time favorite books are Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides, She's Come Undone by Wally Lamb, and anything by Mitch Albom. I look forward to helping you out at the WRIT this semester!

Dan 
 

Hi, I am Dan. Working at the WRIT Center 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 undecided on a major but will transfer and earn a four-year degree. While writing is not my first love, I long to read and learn history, politics, philosophy, and world religion. Recent favorites include Bonhoeffer, C.S. Lewis, Herman Hesse and all things Seuss.


 
Autumn
 I’m Autumn, a reading and writing consultant at the WRIT Center. I’ve been here for a few semesters, and I’ve learned that helping my peers is something that I love. While I enjoy reading and writing, my ultimate life goal is to conduct medical research (though I’m not entirely sure what I want to major in). Eventually, one day when I’m older and wiser, I want to teach. I think working at the WRIT Center has, in part, influenced this decision. In my spare time, I like to read Sherlock Holmes stories.

 
Morgan

 

I’m Morgan, a writing consultant at the WRIT. I’m planning on double majoring in English and Communications to eventually become a professor. It’s wonderful working at the WRIT, because I get to help others become better writers as well as learn about a variety of topics while reading papers. Some of my favorite books include The God of Small Things, Jane Eyre, The Picture of Dorian Gray, The Great Gatsby, and This Side of Paradise. Lastly, I enjoy all forms and genres of writing especially poetry and fiction.   ​


 

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.
