#Tips for Writing Your Biography

Give your reader something that can distinguish you from others.  Keep it short and to the point.  The reader is not looking for your life story.  Shoot for 250 words or less.  Anything more than that and you may lose the reader’s interest.  You can add the link to your website if you have a longer biography posted there.

Your biography grows as you grow.  Update it with each new work you produce, award you win, or any other accomplishments you achieve.  Become the authority in your field of interest and set the stage for the way you want your readers to perceive your brand.
