Business & Arts NL is pleased to present a very special workshop – ”The (Short) Story of You, Crafting Your Artist Bio with Ease” facilitated by Christine Hennebury in partnership with artsUNITE / UNITÉ des arts.
If you struggle with writing bio statements, you aren’t alone.
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. Stop thinking and start writing!
In “The (Short) Story of You,” Christine Hennebury will lead you through a painless, repeatable process that will help you to jump over some common writing obstacles, identify the most applicable details from your life/work, and enable you to develop a solid first draft of an engaging and effective bio statement for your next grant application or public event.
Your story is what will make people care. Christine will help you get to the heart of it.
This workshop will be hosted via Zoom. A link to the event will be shared with your registration confirmation email.
