Spotlighting New Consultants in The Center: John
The beginning of the semester is always energizing and full of opportunities – especially when that semester is the Spring semester. We begin to shake off the affects of seasonal depression, warm weather is only a few months away, and we get to meet new people who may become a huge part of our academic and personal lives. These experiences also include the student employees and faculty that we work with daily to make college a little less chaotic. So, in the spirit of Spring semester, we would like to introduce our new writing center consultants and encourage the community to engage with and welcome them into the space!
All week we’ve featured different posts from each of our four new UWC consultants. Last but certainly not least, we’d like to introduce John!
What inspired you to work at the University Writing Center?
John: I wanted to work at the writing center because it means that I can advance my writing skills while promoting the skills of my peers.
What are some aspects of the center that you wish you knew before you started working here?
John: That every consultant has their own personality and is their own special person.
What are you most excited about in your work at the center?
John: I’m excited to work with writers from the beginning of their process to the end and see each unique path every writer brings.
What is one common misconception about the writing process that you want others to know about?
John: I want people to know that there is no single standard practice or path in writing, you are your own person and you know what works best for you, so do that.
If you could be one mythological being, who would it be and why?
John: Typhon, who is the God of Storms, because he is the deadliest and most powerful in Greek mythology.
