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 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, 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.  ​






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.​



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.
