How you tell your story is as important as what you tell
If you remember back to high school English you probably recall the idiom “show don’t tell” which is especially relevant for writing artist biographies. If you were an agent or talent buyer, would you pursue an act with a bland, cliché-filled, unimaginative bio that reads like a college resume or an engaging, moving, interesting or funny story that comes alive on the page?
Language is a tool, like any other, and one that you can use to convince potential supporters of your value. If you can tell your story in a way that engages and triggers the emotional centers of the brain, you are much more likely to get a “yes” when it comes to critical career-building opportunities.
