Abstract Writing Assistance

The Call for Proposals is asking for a 150-200 word abstract.  Reach out to the Debby Ellis Writing Center (DEWC) if you need assistance in writing an abstract to submit.  DEWC can introduce students to the basic conventions of abstract writing. The Center will look at models from prior Research and Creative Works Symposium and break down the parts of an abstract.  You may send your abstract to DEWC if you would like peer feedback on your abstract prior to proposal submission.  Please contact Dr. Jennifer Marciniak, Director of the Debby Ellis Writing Center (Marcinij@southwestern.edu)
