The Writing Studio

We're not here because you can't write; we're here because you do!

A student gets help in the Writing Studio

The Writing Studio is here to help you perfect what you already do well. Here, you can get a new perspective on your writing style and content, share your thoughts with others who want to help you succeed, and refresh your memory of the rules of Standard Academic American English. Instead of editing your work as you sit and watch, we assist you in refining and developing your ideas in an interactive process. We do not promise better grades; instead, we cultivate a newfound confidence in your own abilities.

A “writing studio” by definition is a place of creativity, empathy, and growth, but more importantly, it is a place for all writers and all types of writing. We’re prepared to help you with traditional papers, but we also work with you on all kinds of projects involving literacies, from screenplays to lab reports to digital projects. We even help with graduate application materials, like personal statements. Our consultants are excited to meet you and learn more about the writing that you do each day!

To make an appointment for the Writing Studio, go to http://lipscomb.mywconline.com.

We also have supplemental handouts on various writing topics that you may share and download for your own use. Please email Dr. Cori Mathis, the Director of the Writing Studio, if you see an opportunity for us to add materials on different topics.

Hi! My name is Anna Adams, and I’m from Rogersville, Tennessee. I’m a junior and a non-traditional transfer student majoring in English and minoring in Spanish. In my free time, I enjoy reading, playing the guitar and violin, drawing, and watching anime. I’m not sure what my long-term career goals are, but after I graduate, I would like to teach English in Japan for at least a year. I love reading and writing analytically, and I have recently had two of my essays published in literary anthologies. I am thrilled to be part of the Writing Studio, and I can’t wait to help you reach your academic goals!

Shelby Hallett

Hi, friends! My name is Shelby Hallett. I'm majoring in English Teaching and minoring in Spanish (I hope to study abroad in Spain over the summer!) I love traveling, painting, and, of course, reading. Really, any form of storytelling can catch my attention. Recently, I've developed a love for narrative podcasts, but I'm down to nerd out over shows and movies too.

Alisa

Alisa Holland

Hey, y'all! I'm Alisa, and I am a senior English Literature and Spanish double major (who just did a study abroad in Spain!) from Montgomery, Alabama. I enjoy working out at CrossFit, going salsa dancing, learning new languages, hanging out with my friends, listening to ‘60s-’80s rock, exploring family genealogy, watching Downton Abbey, and drinking tea; also, my favorite book at the moment is Jane Eyre. This is my first semester at the Writing Studio, and I can't wait to support you in your academic endeavors!

Callie Horner

Callie Horner

Hey, y'all! My name is Callie Horner, and I am a junior English major from Jackson, Tennessee. Growing up, I didn't say much, and I kept to myself, but writing permitted me time to think about the things I wanted to say, which allowed me to communicate my ideas in beautiful ways. It was a gift for an introverted, insecure girl! I love watching sports, especially college football. Additionally, like most people, I couldn't make it in this world without music. I spend a lot of my free time curating Spotify playlists. I look forward to helping you gain confidence in this form of communication. If you're anything like me, you need all the help you can get!

I’m excited to work in the Writing Studio here at Lipscomb, and I look forward to meeting you!

Hi! My name is Abigail McQueen, and I'm a sophomore English major with a double minor in psychology and marketing. This will be my first semester working at the Writing Studio. I've lived in Nashville my whole life, and while I do enjoy visiting the city's many coffee shops, I much prefer hot chocolate. Outside of work, I'm very involved with both my social club and Mission 5:13, Lipscomb's service club. I enjoy going on runs, reading (I'm always happy to discuss books!), and especially writing. I am so excited to be a part of the Writing Studio team and cannot wait to work with y'all this year!

After this year I plan on getting my masters in either English or administration. I have an overwhelming passion for animals (especially horses), meeting new friends, good food, and anything that will get my adrenaline rushing. I am also a fiend for learning new information (the Enneagram test is my current obsession--I'm a seven:)). I couldn't be more excited to work alongside you!!!

Noah Stump

Noah Stump

Hi, my name is Noah Stump, and I'm a senior English Writing major from central Ohio! The only thing I like more than writing is reading, and I'm something of a bibliophile. I enjoy novels, fantasy stories, poetry, historical fiction, and psychological works. I'm happy to work at the Writing Studio to help anyone refine their writing and fully express their ideas through the written word!

Germeen Tanas

Germeen Tanas

Hello! My name is Germeen Tanas and I am a third-year English major at Lipscomb. On the weekends, I enjoy grabbing Boba with friends, going to church, and doing some light reading! I've always enjoyed the thrill of writing, and I find satisfaction in the revision and editing process. To me, writing is like a puzzle, except that you get to make the pieces yourself and see how they would add to your paper. I believe that writing is one of the best ways to communicate creatively and uniquely, and when we strengthen our writing, we develop a superpower! I'm excited to work with students this semester and help them feel empowered through writing.

In true English major fashion, I love reading, particularly any book someone from TikTok tells me to read, and I love the grammar side of writing. I’m also a big coffee girl; you’ll almost never find me without it! I’m beyond excited to work with you!
