The Author Bio
I've been reading a lot of bios lately and most are just a stream of literary journal titles. Then when I'm not expecting it a really funny one will come in. I love those. They really make my day :) Do you poets have any input on this one? Would you rather list your publishing accomplishments or say something of your personality, or both? I've had to write them, too and dread it every time. (and it isn't only because I don't have one of those long lists...) When the accaptances have been figured out for the anthology next month I am thinking of emailing those included and asking each to answer a question and to also submit a formal bio if they choose. I'd like to make it completely optional. Any thoughts?
