About the Workshop

How to Write a Killer Introduction

Introductions are critical aspects of a paper because their contents and quality can compel a reader to either read or pass over an academic paper and open or close a reader's mind to the contents within it. An introduction influences the way a reader will understand a paper's contents by hinting at a paper’s purpose and content, providing context for understanding the writer’s train of thought, and establishing relationships between ideas that are forthcoming. A killer introduction will pique a reader's interest and make them eager to read your paper. This workshop will offer techniques for writing and revising introductions, including how to identify when they have reached "killer" status.
