An artist, chef or musician’s biography is never finished for long. Like your resume, it should be revised regularly as your work changes and you find new ways of expressing what you are doing. So get good at writing them! In this session, we will discuss best practices for writing and updating your artist, band or personal bio for different publications and audiences; hear experts live workshop pre-submitted bios; and finish with a small group workshop time to hone your storytelling. If you already have your bio written, bring it along to share during this time.
