What the heck does a writer CV look like? I've applied for a few residencies and awards, and several request one to be included with the application. I work a corporate day gig (like I suspect many writers do) and don't quite know what I should be including. Google is no help and most my writer friends have never done one. Any thoughts on that, or have any of your clients ever needed one?Yup, they sure have. For applying for residencies and awards!
A CV is a fancy word for a resume. It stands for curriculum vitae. You see it used most often in academia.
A writer's CV would include all the published writing you've done (yup, ALL, unless it runs to ten+ pages, then you start prioritizing). It includes previous awards or residencies. It included jobs that involve writing (If you teach in the English Department at Buttonweezer School for Wayward Sharks for example)
Generally you're not going to include non-writing stuff. Leave off your work as a contract killer for example, but do include your paid gigs as a query critiquer even though they are essentially the same job.
