Below is the list of the important things that the resume of a writer must reflect:


1. As a writer you need to mention the publications that you have done so far. This is the most important thing and should be highlighted at the top. The details of the publications can also be provided if they are relevant to the organization or individual who is reading that.

2. You need to explain your writing experience in details so that the other person gets the clear idea of the kind of works you have been involved in. It's a good practice to provide the details of the writing style. That tells the other person that you have enough understanding of your writing.

3. You need to provide your academic details, though not always that will be required. But make sure that you mention the language details, what kind of scores you have got in school or college in the language that you are currently writing. But only if you have scored very well. Else it may also give the negative impression to the reader.

4. You need to mention the achievements and awards or honors that you have received as a writer. They may be small competitions at school or college level. But just goes on to tell that you have excelled in this field and have done something extraordinary.

5. Do not forget to mention the references and contacts which will be a key part of the resume. You need to mention the well known people that you have worked with. It gives the idea of your work area and kind of people you have involved with in the past.

6. Mention the skills that you have. Firstly those related to writing - the technical and non technical aspects of it, and then the other personal and professional skills that you possess.

7. Keep your resume short and brief. Do not make it any longer than one page. Otherwise it gets tedious for the reader to go through all the content.
