MONDAYS, MAY 17 — JUNE 14 | Do you know how to create a literary CV, author bio, artist statement, and “About Me” statements? When conference directors, funding panels, and residency committees meet around a table to discuss your application, are these tools of the trade hobbling you or helping you? In this month-long seminar, learn how to create professional documents that, regardless of your experience level, broadcast that you are a serious, committed writer worthy of genuine consideration.
Asynchronous learning materials for this class will be available online (via the Wet Ink platform). Scheduled class sessions will take place via Zoom. Registered students, please contact the instructor directly for details.
