Maggie Herb, who was once told by an English teacher that she had a "fundamental problem with semicolons," is the director of the Writing Center and a lecturer in the Department of English. She is a recent transplant from Western Pennsylvania and therefore finds Central Florida equal parts beautiful and weird. Maggie is currently completing her Ph.D. in composition and T.E.S.O.L. at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, her dissertation focusing on the narratives of writing center tutors and the writers with whom they work. She is a contributor to Before and After the Tutorial: Writing Centers and Institutional Relationships (Hampton Press, 2011). She feels incredibly honored that her job involves working with peer tutors and reading the words of emergent writers.
