This week I've been struggling to put together a writer bio for myself. It sounds like fun to make a list of accomplishments and credits, until the questions kick in.
What kind of bio should I write? Will editors or readers care where I live and what my hobbies are, or should I just dive right into the writing credits? Have I listed enough credits? Should I list different ones?
So I've been doing a lot of reading to figure out how to write this thing and what to include in it. It seems that no matter what style bio someone has, it includes some of the following:
1. Publishing Credits
2. Writing Awards and Recognition
3. Writing job &/or experience
4. Writing Memberships or Associations
6. Personal Tidbit
I'm off to take another stab at this. I found the below articles were especially helpful:
