As a writer, if you want to earn a decent income, through freelancing, corporate writing, or as an author, you need a profile sheet. Often called a “one-sheet,” its a single-page document with your photo, brief bio, contact info, list of accomplishments, current projects, awards, successes, and sometimes quotes or testimonials from people who’ve worked with you.

A LinkedIn profile offers much of the same material, but editors and agents will know you’re serious if you offer a media sheet along with your query or clips.

If you’re ready to create one, pour another cup of coffee and Google this phrase: “create an author one-sheet” and you’ll find plenty of resources.
