Words of Wisdom

Speech is power: speech is to persuade, to convert, to compel. It is to bring another out of his bad sense into your good sense.

— Ralph Waldo Emerson

This workshop begins by defining abstracts and their function in academic writing. We distinguish between informative and descriptive abstracts and show samples of each type. After we consider the writing process best used for writing abstracts, we conclude with a discussion of sample abstracts.
