Writing Center Staff
The Writing Center is staffed by friendly, trained, peer tutors who come from majors and programs across campus. As students and writers ourselves, we know that writing can be difficult, and we know how valuable a second pair of eyes can be to the writing process. We hope to help each student who visits us become a better, more confident writer, one paper at a time.

Maggie Herb, who was once told by an English teacher that she had a "fundamental problem with semicolons," is the director of the Stetson University Writing Center and a lecturer in the English department. 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 TESOL 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.
