Meet Our Staff!
I'm a senior Creative Writing major at Malone. I have taken most of the creative writing courses by this point (ENG 231, ENG 311, ENG 315, ENG 331, ENG 332, and more) and am excited to work with anyone who needs help in finding his or her voice in writing creatively--or anyone who needs help with anything else creative in general. For real. I love to help. I also love fall and pumpkin- spiced anything—but that's beside the point. I will do my very best to help you with whatever piece of writing you bring, so come on down!
Hi, I'm Allison! I'm a senior majoring in English with a Comm Arts minor. I am currently a PR intern at Stark County PSC as well as a peer tutor at Malone. I played soccer in high school, sometimes I run adventure courses and ziplines, and I like to think I've traveled a lot (Mexico, Costa Rica, Belgium, Switzerland, France, England, Wales). Here are some of the courses I have taken: College Exp. (Everett), Intro to Psych (Moroney), Intro to Philosophy (Floyd), Comm Skills (Russell), Stats (Glasgow), Lit in Society (Jensen), Intro to Creative Writing (Estes), American Lit (Brownlee), Public Speaking (Lawson), Contexts of Journalism (Dixon), Adolescent Lit (Ries), World Lit (Pahlau), Brit Lit (Chambers), Foundations of Edu. (Rumano), Psych of Human Learning (Beine), Essay Writing (Parsons). However, I'd love to help out with any course assignment!
Hi, I'm Anna. If you asked me to sum up my typical behavior in a sentence it would be this: I'm often found asleep beside a pile of books I meant to finish while clutching a comically large mug of coffee. I am a Senior Creative Writing student and a veteran Writing Center tutor (this is my third year). I have had classes with most of the Lang and Lit faculty and am familiar with those that I haven't had for a class. Feel free to book an appointment with me anywhere in your writing process whether it be an academic paper or short story that you're working on. Know that I'm here to help and like to encourage you to have fun with writing.
Hi everyone! I'm a senior Creative Writing major, and this is my third year working in the Writing Center. I'm in the honors program and have taken a number of both basic and advanced English courses, as well as several Bible and theology classes and a variety of others. I'm also editor-in-chief of The Aviso AVW for my second year now, so I've got pretty good experience doing just what you need from me. I have a very good eye for spelling, grammar and sentence structure issues, so if you need help picking out split infinitives or comma splices, I'm your girl!
Junior, Art Major
Hi, I'm Bryce. I am a junior double major in Creative Writing and Psychology. I am the Assistant Editor of The Quaker, a national undergraduate literary journal, and I occasionally write for The Nerve, Malone's magazine of culture and art. I am interested in memoirs, creative non-fiction, fantasy, and sci-fi. I enjoy learning about the brain, personality styles, temperament, and organizational and industrial psychology. One of my past times and passions is movies and cinematography. In 2013, I was cast as an extra in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and it was one of the most invigorating things I have ever been a part of. Being a double major, I have taken a myriad of English and writing courses and can offer assistance in both MLA and APA formats. I'm happy to help in whatever aspect of writing is needed.
I am a junior English and Global & International Studies double major with a minor in Psychology. Some of my many hobbies are reading, writing, traveling, laughing, learning languages, day dreaming, making bad puns, and eating. I have been in several classes (obviously), but the most helpful to you would probably be Lit & Society (ENG 200), Creative Writing (ENG 231), Language and Lit Seminar (ENG 206), American Lit (ENG 231), British Lit (ENG 240), Style & Usage (ENG 315), Intro to Linguistics (ENG 381), and a plethora of other English/other interesting Gen Ed classes.
Hi! I am Katrina, a junior majoring in Social Work with two minors: English and Psychology. This is my first year tutoring at Malone's writing center; however, I previously worked at the Stark State College writing center for three years. At Stark State College, I became quite familiar with APA formatting and a love for research. Some fun facts: I adore cats! Also, I love to read teen fiction, scrap-book and outside activities!
I'm a senior psychology major, which means I've had to become very familiar with APA format. But I love creative writing as well. I'd be happy to help you with either end of the spectrum, as well as anything in between. Other than school, I love playing guitar and being involved in all sorts of fun music projects.
Lindsay here! This is my second year working at the Writing Center, and I LOVE it. When I'm not working, studying, or at the gym, I love to cook and simply spend quality time with my wonderful friends and family (as seen in the picture of my mother and me alongside the giant bowl of salsa we made). I am a senior this year and will be graduating in the spring as an Intervention Specialist/Early Childhood Education major. I am very familiar with APA formatting, and I have completed all but one of my general education requirements and almost all of my EDUC/SPED classes. So, if you have any questions about a paper you're writing for an education course, ENG 145, Philosophy, or World Politics, I can help.
My name is Patrick. I am an English and Creative Writing double major. I'm just an average, everyday normal guy (Jon Lajoie anyone?). I have plenty of experience working midnights at gas stations and McDonald's. When heading into battle, I prefer to do so on the back of a llama. Once a month, I like to get on stage and scream into a microphone for people to pretend they enjoy it. Oh, fun fact for you - green is not a creative color. Bring me your papers.
Hi, I'm Stephanie and this is my second year in the Writing Center. I am a junior Zoo and Wildlife Biology major who also happens to enjoy reading and writing. I do not have a favorite animal, but I do have an affinity towards owls, red pandas, octopuses, and jellyfish. When I'm not studying, I like being outside, perusing Pinterest while listening to movie soundtracks, thrifting, and making crafts. I have taken many of the honors gen eds and am familiar with both MLA and APA style writing. Stop in for a brainstorming session, grammar check, or content review session!
I am a senior, double majoring in Business Administration and Accounting, and I am also on the football team. This is my second year working in the writing center, so I'm comfortable helping with whatever you need!
