Words of Wisdom

There are always three speeches, for every one you actually gave. The one you practiced, the one you gave, and the one you wish you gave. 

— Dale Carnegie

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.
