Your author bio often determines whether an editor, agent, or prospective reader will read your work. Come find out what to include—and exclude—in a strong author bio, practice what you learn, then give and get feedback for polishing. You’ll leave the June COWG meeting with a clear understanding of a bio’s objective across media and how to craft one that entices people to engage—for example, to get an agent to click the Reply button to request pages of your work.
