Introductory / Intermediate | Interviewing is an essential skill for all writers, whether writing a story, novel, or nonfiction piece. This class will teach you how to conduct a great interview: How do you set it up? How do you prepare? Should you use a tape recorder or take notes? How do you edit the finished product? The instructor will reveal secrets about turning mediocre interviews into great ones. In addition to learning interviewing techniques, participants will interview each other.
Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Winter quarter 2021.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
