SATURDAY, JUNE 1 | Ready to elevate your writing career to the next level, but not sure how to present your background in an appropriately professional fashion? Whether you have a long list of publication credits or just a few, you need a literary resumé that both adheres to professional standards and encourages panelists, editors, and reviewers to learn more about your work. When done properly, this resumé helps you:
• Land funding for your writing projects
• Get invitations to present work at conferences
• Obtain reading opportunities
• Present a strong residency application
• Get editors’ and publishers’ attention
• Be taken seriously as a writer, and not a hobbyist.
Bring your laptop, and leave with a restructured, shiny new resumé that makes your accomplishments–whether large or small–stand out!
