Part-Time Writing Consultants:

Paul Ketchum
Paul is a writer living in Brooklyn. He received his MFA from Brooklyn College in Playwriting and his BA from the University of Denver in English and Theater. His plays have been seen onstage at Classic Stage Company, the Bushwick Starr, and Little Theater at Dixon Place. His essays, reviews, and fiction have been published by the Brooklyn Rail, Electric Literature, and Sock Monkey Press. He is on the committee for the Pataphysics Workshop at the Flea Theater and bakes handmade bread in his spare time. He loves helping students take ownership over their ideas through writing and is consistently surprised by what he learns from the students who come to the WCC.


Peer Consultants:

James Sinodinos
James is a sophomore from Staten Island majoring in chemical biology. He plays on the varsity baseball team at Stevens and participates in campus life as a peer mentor. James is a member of the Stevens Health Professions club as he aspires to attend medical school or physician assistant school after completing his degree. During his free time, James loves playing ping pong and watching his favorite shows on Netflix (How I Met Your Mother and The Office). His favorite book is The Count of Monte Cristo and his favorite movie is Gladiator.

Frankie Guarini
Frankie is currently a sophomore pursuing a double degree in Visual Arts and Technology and Science, Technology, and Society. Frankie is the vice president of the Art Installations Club, a member of the Honor Board, and a writer and layout editor for The Stute. Outside of school, he enjoys reading comic books (The Walking DeadSaga), playing video games, working on board game and card game-related projects, and keeping current on Psych. However, the most important facet of Frankie is his passion for professional wrestling – which you can read about in his weekly column “The Stute Smackdown” – an interest that supersedes all others (except writing, of course).
