Here are a few indispensable elements of a Biosketch which would help you frame your answer:

Elaborate on the person’s details- life, career, background, life, activities etc. The person 's life story is told with respect to other people and events of the time in which they lived. It develops an understanding of the people, place, times, and events in which the person lived. It tells the story in a style and tone that the reader/listener can relate to the person and believe in their humanness. It talks about the person’s influence on the world. Thus, in this way, a biosketch includes almost all the major details of an individual.

There are a few things which need to be kept in mind while writing an article:

  • Choose an appropriate topic for your article.

  • Contemplate and organise the ideas that you want to incorporate in your article.

  • Begin with just writing out your article without worrying too much about the length. It's more important to let all your ideas flow out of your mind first. If you think it's getting too long split it up into two or more articles. It's often easier to write a short article of 500 words than one of 1000 words. 

  • Create an outline for your article. Your article should include a headline, introduction, body and a conclusion. Also, do not forget to add bibliography, if required.

  • At last, read, re-read, format and frame the final draft finally.
