Writer’s Wednesday is written by the writing associates and graduate assistants at Southeast Missouri State University’s Center for Writing Excellence. Each semester brings new voices and offers a wide range of experience to work from. Some of those currently writing for us include
As coordinator of the CWE, Jennifer is our delightful and supportive leader. She has a bachelor’s degree in Mass Communications with an emphasis on Public Relations and an master’s degree in English.
Addie Scoggin is a second year Graduate/Teacher Assistant completing her masters in Professional Writing. She received her undergraduate degree with a major in English Composition here at SEMO. Addie was led to teach higher education after taking English courses in her local community college, MAC. What she looks most forward to is teaching English writing at the University level overseas.
Karen Holman is a second year graduate assistant at the CWE. She is currently working on her masters in Professional Writing after receiving her bachelor’s degree in English from Southeast. She hopes to eventually turn her love of writing into a career in editing.
Brandi Odom is one of the tutors here at the Writing Center as well as one of the Teaching Assistants for the English Department. She is originally from St. Louis and goes back a few times a month to visit her family and puppy. A huge horror flick lover, she still hasn’t found a movie that has really scared her. Besides her love for horror, she is also a big St. Louis Blues hockey fan; you’re almost always sure to see her donning some kind of Blues apparel on game days.
Taylor Bryant is a first year Teaching Assistant in the English Studies program. She has a bachelor’s degree in Political Science, specializing in Constitutional Law. She is obsessed with the A Song of Ice and Fire series and the HBO original Game of Thrones, which are the topic of her master’s thesis. Other interests include, but are not limited to: hockey, puppies, video games, and heavy metal/hair metal.
Haley Albert is a first-year English graduate student here at SEMO. She graduated from Lyon College with her bachelor’s degree in English and a concentration in secondary education, and now she’s excited to be working in the Writing Lab! To her, the best part about working in the writing lab is getting help people become better writers. Whether she’s writing fiction, poetry, or even an academic essay, she enjoys writing more than anything. It makes her so happy to share this passion with other people in hopes that they will enjoy writing as much as she does.
