Oh, this is timely!

Writer Unboxed » What to Write in the “Bio” Section Of Your Query Letter.

I have no formally published works, no awards, and nothing remarkable to boast about. So it’s good that the answer here is to not write a bio paragraph at all. Unfortunately, one of the agents I’m looking at requires a bio anyway. And look at this!

What if you have nothing about yourself to discuss, but the agent specifically requests a “bio sheet” or “bio paragraph” or something like that? If that’s the case, then this would be the one time to simply fill white space and talk about lesser things of importance. It’s a tough situation; just write whatever you can.

Sounds like a plan!
