Meet the Graduate Tutor

isobel-ortiz_headshot_2019.jpgIsobel Robinson_Ortiz (she/her/hers) is an Atlanta native, an ASC alum, and the CWS' first Graduate Writing tutor. She obtained her BA in English Literature-Creative Writing in 2013, and began her graduate studies in Writing & Digital Communication in 2018. In the intervening time, Isobel worked and wrote for organizations like The Women’s Campaign Fund, the Ironworkers Management Progressive Action Cooperative Trust, and Hux.com. Currently, Isobel works at The Howard School, helping to teach children with learning disabilities and differences. In her free time, she enjoys reading, making music with her viola and voice, delving into internet subcultures, paying way too much attention to the news for her health, and, of course, writing! Isobel’s poetry has been published twice before, but she also enjoys writing fiction and creative nonfiction. After graduation, Isobel would like to further pursue her career in writing for commercial and creative purposes. Isobel is looking forward to assisting her fellow grad students with their writing this year. She intimately understands how nerve-wracking it can be to return to academic writing after taking a break. Whether you're a confident writer, a nervous one, or somewhere in between, Isobel (and the CWS) will be there to help.
