Have you ever been frustrated by the interview process? Wondered what sort of questions to ask in order to get the answer you need? Had no idea what to do when your subject’s answer isn’t for the question you asked? Know deep down in your bones that something else is there, but you don’t know how to get at it?
In this session, learn the art of the interview and the ways it can help your writing. Whether you're a fiction writer trying to get to the heart of a character or a nonfiction writer interviewing someone for an essay or memoir, the right phrasing, wording, and order will help you get the answers you're seeking—and the answers you didn't know were there.
Interviewing is a dance and you, as the interviewer, are the leader. This session will teach you how to get the information you need, even when your subject wants to take over.
