This workshop was presented as part of the artsUNITE national launch, with Business & Arts NL.
Even the most prolific writers, performers and artists find it challenging to talk about themselves and their work in a succinct and effective way. The challenge of writing a bio isn’t about your abilities or your confidence level. You probably don’t need an ego boost; you just need a process. In The (Short) Story of You, Christine Hennebury will lead you through a painless, repeatable process that guides you past some common writing obstacles, helps you to identify the most applicable details from your life/work, and then enables you to develop a solid first draft of an engaging and effective bio statement for your next grant application or public event.
