Creating a Writer’s Bio

Posted: April 21, 2014 in Writing Advice

Your writing bio must answer:

Who Are You?

  • Your first line should serve as a professional introduction.
  • What do you like to write about?
  • What is your focus/purpose for writing?

What Are Your Publishing Credits?

  • What experience do you have (courses, publications, contests, etc)

Are You Making The Right Impression?

  • Write in the third person and keep your bio short and meaningful
  • Include any organizations you belong to
  • Include a personal, but appropriate, fact about yourself.
