Video Guide for Workbook: Writing Bios, Artist Statements, Blurbs
Do you freeze up when asked to write about yourself and why you do what you do? You aren’t alone! These days everyone needs to write bios, statements, and short blurbs for something—social media, book covers and listings, applications, gallery shows, competitions—the requests are endless. You may think this is easy-peasy, and fire them off in a flash. But are you writing what’s needed for the specific purpose you’re intending? What we're seeing and hearing from Creatives of all sorts, gallery owners, marketers, book publishers, and on social media—mostly NOT. You know that within the first three seconds of meeting someone, they form opinions that affect your success. It’s the same with the artist statements, bios, and blurbs you write: the first 30 words can make a huge difference, and the last thing you want to do is write a 1000-word book! Wouldn't it be handy to have templates to make writing personalized artist’s statements and bios a breeze? This video guide will walk you through the WORKBOOK and you can refer back to it whenever you need a reminder. ENJOY!
