Biographers International Organization has a worldwide membership of biographers. We also welcome those working on documentaries and biographies for young adults or children. Whether you're a writer, editor, or agent, first-timer or veteran, published or unpublished, aspiring or merely looking, BIO is here for you.
Join BIO in the Netherlands!
On September 20 and 21, 2018, BIO joins the Biography Institute and the Biography Society in hosting the conference “Different Lives: Global Perspectives on Biography in Public Cultures and Societies.” The conference will take place in Groningen, Netherlands, home of the Biography Institute, which is directed by BIO member Hans Renders. Learn more about the conference here.
BIO’s Mentoring Program
Feeling stuck? Whatever state your biography’s in—vague idea, proposal, well underway—BIO’s experienced biographers can help. For a limited time, we
are offering a one-hour phone or email mentoring session for $60. (The
cost of any additional sessions can be worked out with your mentor.) Email BIO
President Cathy Curtis with a brief statement about the
nature of your project and your goals for the one-hour session, and you will be matched with a mentor who can help you get unstuck.
