Writing abstracts for academic conferences has always been a challenging process for EFL teacher practitioners and even early career researchers. A conventional abstract is often between 150 and 300 words and plays a vitally important role as it is mostly the only evidence for reviewers’ judgement on the quality of a study. All key details of the research are often required, and particularly suitable words are solely chosen. As a result, the abstract writing process includes multiple rounds of drafting, reviewing, and rewriting; and it finally turns out to be considerably condense. Taking these challenges into consideration, this workshop is developed and conducted particularly for EFL teacher practitioners and alike. It primarily aims to get the participants understand the structure of a conventional abstract; draft proper abstracts, using key information provided; compose abstracts from their own research; and critically analyze, comment, and edit their peers’ abstracts. The workshop serves as a hands-on experience for EFL teachers to formally introduce their classroom practices at academic conferences and early career researchers to be accepted more easily by the academic world.
