We are over halfway through this semester! Hooray! That tends to mean a lot of upcoming final projects are being announced and essays are being assigned. I know that I have recently been given two essays to write and a final presentation to plan. The struggle is becoming real. But, no need to fear! Your fellow peers at the Klooster Writing Center are here to help with any kind of essay you are assigned. From Lab Reports to Application Letters, the Writing Tutors are trained to walk with you through what you might already have written or through the outlining process.

Do you have an essay you need to write in Chicago Style Formatting? The Writing Center can help! A Personal Reflection, research paper, response essay, or argumentative essay? That’s what we are here for! 

From stubborn Thesis Statements to overlooked grammatical errors, the Writing Tutors have been taught to catch the littlest complications and walk you through ways to fix or accomplish your goals for any paper. We understand that no two people write the same and that everyone is unique. The Writing Center is a judgment free environment that strives to make you feel comfortable and accepted. Candy is on each desk that you are more than welcome to help yourself to during appointments. You can also meet our mascot Ollie the Schefflera, an Australian umbrella tree. He provides us with the beautiful clean air we breathe in our little section of the Library.

Things to Look Forward To:

We are happy to announce that we are working on setting up Workshops where students can come learn all kinds of writing tips and be given pieces of advice. From different format styles to what a comma splice is, we are cooking up ideas of topics that will be discussed. Keep an eye out for more information on these Workshops as the Writing Center finalizes the details to get these “Gatherings of Community Learning” settled.

Upcoming Events:

We have one workshop that is currently planned; on Wednesday, November 16 from 6-9pm there is going to be a writing workshop in the Granberg Room on the 2nd Floor of Van Wylen Library. Come and go as you please! There will be engaging discussions about writing and time for pieces of writing that you may have to be read over by one of the Writing Students working the event! There will be amazing food; cookies, pretzels and an iced coffee bar! Everyone is invited and the Writing Center is looking forward to hosting their very first event for the student body.
