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. It is a place where you can get a new perspective on your writing style and content, to share your thoughts with others who want to help you succeed, and to refresh your memory of the rules of Standard 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 new-found 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 look forward to meeting to discuss your project.To make an appointment for the Writing Studio, go to http://lipscomb.mywconline.com.

We also have supplemental handouts you may share and download for your own use.

Alexa Tully

Hi! Hello! I’m Alexa Tully, an English major from Spring Hill, TN! I started at Lipscomb as an Accounting major, yet recently discovered writing was a field that I’m much more passionate about. I love to edit and perfect pieces of writing and dream of writing for magazines and new sources. When I’m not writing, I find myself itching to travel, whether it be a short road trip or a trek across Europe! Don’t even get me started on my study abroad experience! I’m looking forward to getting to work with you to enhance your writing!

Callie Rogers

Callie Rogers

Hello there! My name is Callie Rogers, and I’m a junior biology major with a minor in English. My biggest inspiration for writing is the beauty of God’s creation—I just love the wonderful world around us! While writing, my inner science nerd and my love for language often intertwine into a healthy mix of analytical and creative. If I’m not wandering campus looking at animals, you might catch me up late at night practicing snare drum (I have a huge passion for snare drumming and march with two different ensembles). I also have a soft spot for Star Wars, bookstores, and all things Disney. I hope to see you around!

I'm looking forward to working with you on your writing and helping you along the way!

Edith Romero

Hey! It's me, Edith. I am a junior English Teaching major, so I'll be teaching 6-12 graders as soon as I graduate!

Hi guys! My name is Emily, and I am a Senior English-Writing major. When I was younger, I lived in Japan for three years, and about a year ago, I studied abroad in Florence, Italy.

Here at the Writing Studio, we can help you improve your communication abilities within your papers! Come in and see us!

Come by and say hi! I am very talkative and love to meet new people.

Jacob Trost

Hey there! I’m Jacob Trost, a Film Production major in my senior year. Growing up in a small town in Illinois, I always knew I wanted to work in creative media but had few chances to explore this interest. The one thing I could always do, though, was write the stories I hope to eventually tell. When I’m not working on a screenplay or helping out on a crew, I’m usually catching up on all of the TV shows and movies I’ve missed or planning out the next story I’ll be working on. I’m beyond excited to be working here at the Writing Studio this semester, and I look forward to helping you out!

In fact, I’ve already written a few creative writing projects, including an original one-act comedy called Cure-All and three short films called Floss Fracas, Shutter, and Trio. I like movies, TV, reading, writing (big shocker there), and any and all things Beatles (the band, not the bug). Finally, if you’re reading this, then you’re on the Writing Studio web page, and congrats to you for doing your research!

If I am not at school, I am most likely at home in bed, eating Italian food, reading a book, at my Coptic church, or probably at a family cookout. I am so excited to be working in the Writing Studio and I look forward to meeting you!
