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.


 
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.
