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. 



Hi, my name is Thomas! I love being a WRIT consultant because it combines my love for English, and my passion for helping people. I am a member of the Delta Night Garden Poetry Club on campus, and I love all kinds of writing. 


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 eighth semester 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 Ben, and this is my second semester in the WRIT. I am an engineering major, but I also enjoy English. I like being a WRIT Center consultant because it gives me a chance to fulfill my passion of helping people succeed.




Hi there! My name is Megan and this is my second semester in the WRIT Center! While I currently have no idea as to which field of study I will ultimately pursue, I enjoy working at the WRIT because it allows me to engage my passion for English and linguistic application. When I’m lucky enough to locate some free time, I adore TED talks, learning new things, and attempting to cook.





My name is Alex! I have always found true enjoyment in helping others, so I'm very excited to join the team this semester. I'm majoring in Information Science with a concentration in Data Science and plan on transferring to the University of Michigan by Winter 2018. I've had a passion for writing and reading since I was very young and hope to publish a memoir based on my globe-trotting experiences one day. My favorite book is "House of Leaves," and I enjoy traveling, playing tennis, and watching "Doctor Who" in my spare time. 





Hi, I'm Ashley and I'm brand new to the WRIT Center.  I'm majoring in Art and Design, but I have a deep love for English as well. I love encouraging people who think they're horrible at writing to find a less stressful way to pen their thoughts! I'm a Jane Austen and Tolkien kind of person, and I also take great pleasure in working with typography.  I hope to develop a freelance art business, and to help educate young, underprivileged children.




Hi, I'm Jamie! I'm a new consultant and an accounting major with a passion for financial math, orchestra, and yodeling. I love being a WRIT consultant because I love helping people harness the expansive power of words to make something new and incredible. In my free time, I mostly daydream, read essays (yes, essays can be fun to read too!), discover new music, and look at cute photos of goats.




Hi there! My name is Emily and this is my first semester working as a WRIT Center Consultant! You guessed it; my major is English Literature. I was attracted to this opportunity because it allows me to explore the English Language in a new light. My goal is to help make some of my passions for reading and writing less stressful to others. In my spare time, I love reading personal growth books, practicing yoga, and meditating.



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.
