Here are some guidelines for writing the best bio possible. From Backstage.com
- Make it short and sweet.
- Write it in the third person.
This is not an autobiography, it’s a bio. Use subjects like—she/he, your name (Gwyn), etc.
- Avoid the cloying justification.
For example, “I knew I wanted to be an actor at age 5 when I saw a magical production of Peter Pan.” Tell us what you’ve done not why you do what you do.
- Don’t make lists.
Describe or elaborate your skills, training, and experience in sentence form.
- Include personal experiences and special skills.
- Write in “pyramid” style.
Put the most important information at the top, working down to the less critical info.
