What brought you to The Writing Center?
Great experiences with other peer tutors as an underclassmen, as well as hearing my friends who were peer tutors talk about the great staff community.

What do you like most about working with writers at The Writing Center?
What I enjoy so much about The Writing Center is getting to listen to and validate the great ideas students come in with and feature in their papers.

What do you find most challenging about writing?
While I can usually get the words down, getting myself to go back to it, and then go back again and revise even more, is one of the most important, but also most challenging parts of the writing process for me.

What advice do you have for writers?
Free write. If you’re having trouble deciding on a paper topic, figuring out what interests you, or deciding where to go from here in your paper, free write. I don’t do it as much as I should, but always discover something new and am so glad I did.
