Prof. Keeler has been helping students develop their writing skills for almost 15 years.  He teaches Writing courses and helps supervise The Write Place’s daily operations.

“Critical thought grows out of curiosity.  I want to create a space where students can explore their own ideas, and analyze new ones. As they learn the principles of clear, persuasive writing, they discover their own power to put them into practice, which builds a confidence that will serve them far beyond their academic careers.  I love being part of that process.”
