Workshop: Writing Compelling Abstracts

Thinking of applying to the 2019 LLED Grad Student Conference?

Take the pain out of writing your abstract and pick up some career skills along the way by joining us for this LLED Apprenticeship Workshop!


Getting accepted to present at a conference is entirely dependent on the strength of your abstract. Condensing your work into just a few hundred words is not easy but the real challenge is making those words compelling. Luckily, there are a number of rhetorical tricks we can use to draw reviewers in and show them the importance of our work.

In this LLED Apprenticeship Workshop, Professor Anthony Paré will share the secrets to creating an irresistible abstract. During the session, you will also have an opportunity to:

  • Write an abstract tailored to an upcoming conference (or journal!) of your choice;
  • Receive peer feedback on your first draft;
  • Edit your abstract, ready for submission.
