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.  



Our writing workshops are one-hour group seminars that focus on specific writing topics. To register for this workshop please visit our online scheduling system (WCOnline) and click on the Spring 2021 Workshops schedule.
