The David J. Klooster Center for Excellence in Writing provides a wide range of services to Hope College students, faculty, and staff. It is located in VanWylen Library, to the right of the Research Help Desk. We offer seminars and workshops throughout the year, we point you to resources that can help, and we offer individual half-hour sessions with our Writing Assistants. The staff collaborates with Van Wylen Library Research Librarians to provide assistance and instruction across the entire research and writing process. Stop by anytime during the hours listed to the right, or Make an Appointment. Learn more about us on our About page.
