I’m putting together portfolio pages to feature our alumni, students and faculty at AWP and other public gatherings in which we can showcase our collective work. If you’d like to be included in the portfolio, it’s really easy. Each person gets ONE page in the portfolio, which will comprise a series of 3-ring binders arranged by concentration.
I’ve included two different ONE-PAGE samples, one based on my own work, that you can use as examples when putting together your portfolio page. Feel free to take a look at them and copy the style or come up with something of your own. You can use images or go with plain text. You can produce something that looks like a resume or stick with a piece that looks like a book promo page. Or you can even create a hybrid type page that shows whatever you want to features: your teaching credentials, your fiction publications, your books, your articles, etc. This is your chance to let us know all about you!
Here are two possible examples you can use to create your own portfolio:
I think something along these lines is good since it gives you an opportunity to display book covers as well as text, depending on what you want to highlight. However, the choice is yours. Use your one-page of space wisely. The only part of the portfolio that needs to be consistent on all pages is the header since that is what I will use to organize the pages within each binder.
If you want to be included in the AWP portfolio, please be sure to send your ONE portfolio page to me as a WORD document or PDF no later than February 28, 2013. Please do not send late submissions. Note, whatever you send will be included in the portfolio. So please make sure that your page is perfect before submitting it.
When submitting your page, please email it to Erin Underwood at < erin.m.underwood at gmail dot com > and include “Portfolio Page” in the subject line so that I can easily search my email to ensure that I don’t miss anything. If you have any questions, please let me know.
