Event description

Description

The art of writing your own bio is one that is tricky to navigate. Do you use first or third person? What is first or third person? Do you include your university degrees? Do you include client names? What if they’ve changed their business name? Do you say that you love nachos? There are so many different ways to approach this task that often, we leave it until the last minute.

In this workshop hosted by writer, author and content specialist Ellen Harvey (National Young Writers Festival, Ainslie + Gorman, Canberra Writers Festival), you'll be guided through the process of developing your own bio and leave with a handful of hints to make sure you get it right every time.


WHAT TO BRING:
- Something to write with - pen and notebook, laptop, tablet, whatever takes your fancy


WHAT'S INCLUDED:
- Tips and tricks and hands-on help to get your personal and/or professional bio spruced up and sounding amazing
- Snacks and (extra non-tea) refreshments to keep you going


ABOUT YOUR TEACHERS:
Ellen Harvey is a content writer, strategist and project manager. She has degrees in writing and publishing and has been working with content for over a decade. Her clients include print and online publishers, digital media companies, start-ups, government departments and project management consultancies. After hours, Ellen is writing her third (unpublished) novel: a dystopian YA set in Canberra.

ABOUT KEEP CO:
Keep Co is a workshop + creative workspace - supporting local creatives and small businesses to share and promote their work and skills with the wider Canberra community. We're operating a pop-up location in NewActon during November and launching a permanent space in Dairy Road Fyshwick from December. You can drop in to either space at any time during business hours to have a chat about what makes a great creative space and meet some local movers and shakers.


OUR SUPPORTERS:
Big thanks to the team at City Renewal Canberra - this pop-up has been made possible with support from the ACT Government under the City Renewal Authority’s City Grants program. We’d also like to thank NewActon Precinct, The Dionysus Movement and the Molonglo Group for their support in realising this initiative.
