Hi! I’m an English writing major with a minor in journalism. Creative writing, effective writing, and structure are my passions, as well as just about anything interesting. I moonlight as a game developer, and I write fantasy, sci-fi, and horror when I’m not talking with friends. Some of my favorite movies include Donnie Darko, The Conjuring, and Inception. If you ever need help with abstract thinking or writing outside of school, let me know!

Ashley

Hello. I’m majoring in English literature and minoring in philosophy with a focus on ethics, law, and politics. I’m able to help at any point in the writing process, and my favorite types of essays to work on are analyses, CH papers, and syntheses. My dream is to become a literature professor someday. I secretly love to paint, and napping is my passion. I look forward to seeing you this semester!

Cameo

Hi there! I am currently pursuing a BA of music with a double minor in English writing and Latin American studies.

I like to write in the humanities, including sociology, gender studies, history, and the arts, but I am happy to help in any other subject area as well. I am quite fond of helping out in all Core Humanities, English, and Gender Study classes, and I really like digging into the mechanics of grammar. When I am not researching or practicing "world" flute and percussion, I usually am dancing, meditating, constructing traditional "world" instruments, or trying new teas.
