Gracie

Hi, my name is Gracie. I am an Economics and Criminal Justice double major with a minor in Legal Studies. I love working at the WC because it exposes me to so many different perspectives, ideas, and types of assignments. I also love reading a wide variety of genres; I make sure to set aside time for pleasure reading every evening. I am involved in several Honors academic programs on campus and am an avid runner gearing up for the 2019 Boston Marathon.

Claire

Claire is a senior Communication major and Brand Communication minor from Columbia, SC. This is her third semester working at the Writing Center. Outside of the Writing Center, she has been involved with Tri Delta, the Pearce Center for Professional Communication and the Erwin Center for Brand Communications. The Writing Center is one of her favorite parts of Clemson because she gets to use her love for writing to help others. Writing is imperative for any career path, and Claire is thankful to have the opportunity to strengthen her peers’ ability to articulate their thoughts throughout the writing process.

Asia

Hey guys! My name is Asia, and I'm a junior writing fellow from Greenwood, SC. I'm majoring in biochemistry and genetics with a minor in Spanish, and I hope to attend medical school after graduation. I joined the writing center here in the fall of 2018, and I'm so excited to be a part of this awesome team! A little bit about me -- My dad is from the Philippines and met my mom in the Peace Corps, so I grew up around people of all different cultures. I love discovering new music and binge-watching crime dramas. My favorite vine ever is "Hi, welcome to Chili's," and I clearly spend too much time on the internet. Can't wait to meet y'all! Go Tigers!

Elizabeth

Hello! My name is Elizabeth and I'm a first year graduate student in the Master's Program for Writing, Rhetoric, and Media. I graduated with a BA from Mississippi College in English Writing and I'm originally from Tupelo, MS. I love helping anyone through any stage of the writing process, but I especially love working with research and revising grammar and style.

Margo

My name is Margo and I am a sophomore Accounting major, though I may change to Graphic Communications. I'm currently minoring in Creative Writing and Financial Management. I'm a member of Clemson's SAGA and on the staff of The Chronicle, Clemson's visual arts and literary magazine. I have a great love of poetry, art, video games, cats, and dinosaurs. I look forward to helping you!

Laura

Hello! My name is Laura, and I am a junior Environmental Engineering major from Charleston, South Carolina. Some facts about me are that I love animals, traveling, and gardening. I have absolutely loved being a part of the Writing Center since I started in the fall of 2017, and like many of the other Writing Fellows, writing and reading have always played a significant role in the ways in which I express myself, both individually and academically. However, my personal enjoyment of and identification with these activities is not the only reason I find working at the Writing Center to be so rewarding. With the time that I spend here, I only increasingly see the importance of the Writing Center's function of providing an student-centered, collaborative environment in which students may lead conversations about their own ideas and approaches to communication. Communication is always fundamentally a conversation, no matter the medium through which it takes place, and I always leave the Writing Center feeling as though I have engaged in enriching, exciting, and constructive conversations - ones that have benefited both myself and those who I have them with. I hope that you take the opportunity to drop by sometime and that the Writing Center provides as exciting and empowering of a place for you as I know it has for all of us!

Nathan

My name is Nathan and I am thrilled to be at the Writing Center this year. I am a mathematician by trade, but a philosopher at heart. My fundamental belief is that philosophy is not a conundrum of esoterica, but a real, visceral process, one in which we take power over our minds to shape how we move through the world. A wonderful illustration of philosophical potency is the fusion of horizons. Every person has a unique array of experiences, beliefs, and values, known collectively as their horizon. While our horizon creates our perception of the world, the horizons of others remain a mystery. The only way we can come to understand one another, is through the fusion of horizons, whereby we transcend the limitations of myopia and construct an original, integrated perspective. The most essential way we do this is through writing, where the intention of the author and interpretation of the reader interact, clash, and ultimately fuse together to form a new horizon. I look forward to broadening our horizons together.

Brendan

Brendan is a senior undergraduate at Clemson University, majoring in English with minors in Economics and Political Theory. His research interests include postmodernist literary theory, cultural and collective memory, and memorialization in the early twentieth century. He has presented at conferences in Mississippi and North Carolina and is currently involved in two separate research initiatives with members of the English Department faculty at Clemson.

Drew

My name is Drew and I’m a first-year MAE student. Originally from Anderson, SC, I earned my BA in English from Anderson University in 2012. I’ve actually spent the last six years coaching tennis. I grew to love teaching, but I also never gave up my love of writing. So, I decided it was time to return to school to pursue my ultimate goal of being a college professor. Writing has always been my favorite part of the major, whether it’s creative or critical. That’s why I joined the Writing Center: I hope to join my love of teaching with my love of writing, helping as many students as I can. Hope to see you soon!

Maddy

My name is Maddy, and I am a junior Political Science and English double major. I am currently an editor for a campus publication called The Sensible Tiger, working to keep students informed in one quick read. I’ve always enjoyed writing and came across the opportunity to work in the Writing Center in the fall of my freshman year. Ever since then, I’ve been working as a tutor. I’ve actually been considering a career in editing or publishing, or even writing, so this experience is preparing me for multiple possibilities in the future. I suppose I could say the results of my numerous Buzzfeed quizzes that supposedly tell me what character from Friends I’m most like or what my favorite foods reveal about my personality, but the fact that I spend a lot of time taking those quizzes probably says a lot anyway.

Sarah

Hey, I’m Sarah, I’m an English student, but I specifically love writing stories. Being a writing fellow is exciting to me because I love to see how each person has a different writing style, and I love helping them find that style and figure out how to express themselves in writing in a way that fulfills their requirements, but stays true to them. While I love writing, I’m also the president of the Clemson Longsword Guild--and sword fighting is my second love :)

Dealie

In 2017, I graduated from Birmingham-Southern College in Birmingham, AL, where I majored in English and worked in the writing center. Then, I returned to my seasonal job at the Nantahala Outdoor Center before applying to Clemson’s MA in English program, where I am now a first year graduate student working in the writing center. I’m happy to help with all genres of papers but am especially interested in rhetorical analysis, literary criticism, and school/job application essays. We can also talk about commas and going outside.

Kaitlyn

Hello, my name is and I am a current double master’s student in English (MAE) and History. I received my undergraduate degrees from Clemson in English, History, and Political Science in Spring of 2018 and came back to Clemson because I wanted to further my educational experience under the guidance of a few of the professors who made a large impact on my undergraduate experience. I am originally from Plantation, Florida and have traveled throughout the United States, Spain, Serbia, Croatia, Albania, Montenegro, and Kosovo in the past three years. I thoroughly enjoy working with others to find their voice through their writings, but I also love the mentorship abilities this positions enables us.

Joelma

Joelma is a first-year graduate student at Clemson University, enrolled in the Master of Arts in Writing, Rhetoric, and Media (MAWRM). She acquired her tutoring experience as a non-traditional undergraduate student at the University of North Georgia where she worked as a Teacher’s Assistant for Elementary Spanish in Spring 2017, and she was a Writing Fellow and Embedded Writing Tutor in Fall 2017. She graduated from UNG with a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature with a minor in the Spanish language on May 4th, 2018. Her B. A. thesis focused on C. S. Lewis’s The Space Trilogy by identifying how the author’s fictional writing was informed by his Christian Apologetics and Medieval Studies. Joelma is also interested in digital content and media, as creative tools to present information. Some of her undergraduate works include the development of whiteboard animation videos that can be used as pedagogical or commercial tools. She has presented such whiteboard animations at the University System of Georgia Teaching and Learning Conference hosted by the University of Georgia in March 2017 and the Sigma Tau Delta North Georgia Regional Conference held at the UNG Gainesville English Department in Fall 2016. She holds an A.A. in Spanish from Georgia Perimeter College and a B. A. in Journalism from the Catholic University of Pernambuco located in Recife, Brazil. A few of the future life paths she is considering include: pursuing a career as a digital content writer, becoming a PhD candidate in the Rhetorics, Communication and Information Design program at CU, teaching college English writing and composition, or traveling to Spanish speaking countries to perfect her language skills. Ask her again in May 2020, upon her graduation from Clemson University, when she plans on deciding what she wants to be or do when she grows up.

Jenny

Hi there! My name is Jenny and I’m a senior English major with a minor in Communication. I started working at the Writing Center in Fall 2017, and since then I’ve enjoyed helping Clemson students with their writing and learning more about my own writing in the process. One of my favorite things about my job is that I get to read so many different types of writing—from thesis proposals to creative writing and, yes, even lab reports! Reading and writing are two of my favorite things to do, and it’s exciting to get to share these interests of mine with my peers. I think my love of reading started in kindergarten when I read the Junie B. Jones series. Now I mostly read classics, though I’m a fan of new bestsellers too. According to the BuzzFeed quiz "What book genre are you?" I would be a fantasy/adventure!

Emma

My name is Emma, and this will be my second year working at the Writing Center. I am currently an MA of English student at Clemson, and received my BA in English from Clemson as well. My career goal is to continue working on my creative writing while teaching English at the high school or college level. Before working at the Writing Center, I worked at Vickery Hall where I worked with student-athletes on their writing, study habits, and organization skills. Outside of work, I enjoy adorable animals, photography, and spending time with friends on Lake Hartwell or anywhere in nature.

Claire C.

My name is Claire and I am a senior Marketing major with a minor in Biological Sciences. Apart from being a Writing Fellow at the Writing Center, I am a member of Alpha Delta Pi sorority, an intern at the Pearce Center for Professional Communication, a member of Order of Omega honor society and pursuing departmental honors in the Calhoun Honors College. I love all things outdoors, including my favorite place in South Carolina, Lake Jocassee. After I receive my undergraduate degree, I would love to work in the Marketing field for a few years, go to graduate school and eventually become a professor!

Hwi Eun

Hey, my name is Hwi Eun. I'm a first year graduate student in the MAE program at Clemson. My main interests include creative nonfiction and renaissance lit, and I've been dabbling in medical translation/editing work for about four years. Oh! I'm also a coffee-holic (though the caffeine doesn't do much for me), so you will most likely see some form of coffee on my desk if you stop by.
