|I've been doing this a long time, yet I feel I need to ask this question.
Okay, what length does "brief" mean to you.
A theatre I am submitting to said enclose a brief bio and a brief synopsis.
Now, a standard synopsis to me is usually a decent paragraph long.
But, "brief" means something different in everyone's brain.
So, I went to the theatre's website and read the synopses of plays they are doing currently for the year. "Brief" is correct! They read almost like a one sentence log line for a movie script. But 3 brief sentences instead of the log-line's one.
This is fine with me.
But here is my question. Do you think correspondingly the bio should be just as "brief?"
This disrupts my usual initial one-page contact letter format. And yet they want it "strictly adhered to."
What do you think?
What do you put in a "brief" bio? They do not want resume's.
