Cory Cotten-Potter is a second-year M.F.A. student in fiction. In addition to his academic work, he is the assistant director of the CSU Writing Center.
What do you like most about your work at the Writing Center?
I like being able to quickly connect students with services that will really help them. Many students come in overwhelmed or bewildered, and if we can’t help them directly, odds are I can put them in contact with someone who can.
Do you have a favorite memory of your time at the CSU Writing Center?
My favorite moments are those when clients call in or email, saying how helpful a consultation was, and I get to pass that along to the consultants. Our consultants work extremely hard–coping with less than ideal schedules and pay–and I love it when they get the recognition they deserve.
What brought you to CSU?
The Creative Writing faculty.
Describe Eddy Hall in one word.
Do you have a favorite book? Why is it your favorite?
That’s hard. At the moment, I’d have to say Mathias Svalina’s I Am a Very Productive Entrepreneur.
What’s one thing you’d like students and faculty in the English department to know about the Writing Center?
We offer video conferencing consultations, and it would be great more humans utilized this resource.
