Good interviewing is the key to good reporting and great stories. It's a difficult skill to acquire and it can be stressful, but you can learn how to approach a total stranger and elicit information on a topic about which you know nothing. In the second edition of this widely used guide, journalist Gail Sedorkin shows you step by step how to manage the interview process. She explains how to prepare, and what to do when you don't have time to do any research. She outlines the difference between 'soft' and 'hard' interviews, how to use digital tools effectively, and how to make the most of any interview situation. With tips and examples from leading journalists, and covering basic to advanced techniques, Interviewing is an essential guide for journalists, researchers and writers.
