What Are Some Guidelines for Writing a Short Biography?

When writing a short biography, begin by introducing yourself, list your education, experience and awards, and conclude with current or upcoming projects. Write in third person and angle the biography to suit the intended audience.

Start the biography by stating who you are, your areas of expertise and the year you began your current work experience. List the degrees and certifications earned and the institutions that issued these credentials. State notable awards, achievements and professional organizations in which you are a member. List literary titles and publishing houses that have published your work. End the biography with your current area of residence.
