Alena Sanderson (Alena.Sanderson@asu.edu)
Major(s): Journalism and Mass Communications with a focus on Public Relations
THE/HOI professor(s): Dr. O’Flaherty
Alena’s advice: Never underestimate the power of a short sentence.
Location: Taylor Place Starbucks on Mondays and Thursdays; Corner Bakery Café, 455 N 3rd St, Phoenix on Wednesdays
Jakob Wastek (Jakob.Wastek@asu.edu)
THE/HOI professor(s): Dr. Scott Lynch (has also taken classes with Drs. O’Flaherty and Sandoval)
Jakob’s advice: Your first instinct is usually right. Just get writing and the flow will come later. Ideas on paper are much easier to work with than those in your mind.

Matthew Contursi (Matthew.Contursi@asu.edu)
Major: Molecular Biotechnologies and Biosciences / English, Rhetorics
THE/HOI professor(s): Dr. Meloy
Matthew’s advice: Your time writing essays is best spent writing on topics that resonate with you.
Wednesdays, 11am-2pm, 5pm-7pm
Emily Joiner (Emily.Joiner@asu.edu)
Majors: Sustainability and Economics
THE/HOI professor(s): Dr. Popova
Emily’s advice: Don't write aimlessly, know the idea you want to arrive at and then figure out the steps that'll get you there.
Katie Kennedy (email@example.com)
Major(s): English Linguistics and Chinese
THE/HOI professor(s): Dr. Fedock and Dr. King
Katie’s advice: Just get your ideas out. It doesn't matter if it makes sense or not. Write down your initial thoughts, ask yourself why, write down your answer, ask why again, and just get as much out as you can. You won't use everything you think of, but you can now start to sort through what you have and build a skeleton from these ideas. It's easier assemble a skeleton and then flesh it out than to build a whole human one perfect molecule at a time.
Madi Margolis (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Major: Film Production and French
THE/HOI professor(s): Dr. Dove
Madi’s advice: If you get stuck, try writing by hand to get your ideas flowing—most of the time, I end up handwriting entire essays.
Sarah Murray (email@example.com)
Major: Biological Sciences (Biomedical Sciences)
Minor: Women and Gender Studies
THE/HOI professor(s): Dr. Voorhees and Dr. Ostling
Sarah’s advice: Make sure you fully understand your own thesis.
