Create a Professional Literary Resume

Saturday, June 22, 2019 - 12:00pm to 4:00pm

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 resume that both adheres to professional standards and encourages panelists, editors, and reviewers to learn more about your work. When done properly, this resume 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 shiny new resume that makes your accomplishments--whether large or small--stand out!
