Writer’s Workshop: How to Write Your Author Bio & Get a Headshot

Writer staring at blank paperWhether you are an aspiring or published author, your never-ending magnum opus will be your biography—and you will probably need more than one. Unless you can afford a publicist, you will need to learn how to put your best foot forward on your website, a book jacket, a blog or guest appearance throughout your career.

This 5-part workshop will teach you how to “bang your own drum” with class, style and professionalism. You will learn about:

  • What to say (and not to say) about yourself in your bio
  • Tailoring your bio for your audience by setting up a “snippet” library
  • How to write a reusable “positioning statement” (hint: it’s derived from your biography)
  • Why you need a good head shot (and how to get one)

And much, much more! If want to learn more about professional self-promotion, then you’ll want to read all the articles in this series, which I’ve updated from my Muse Writer’s Conference workshop notes.
