Art of the Interview

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

During American Public Media’s Art of the Interview workshop, participants will be led through a discussion that focuses on making the most of interview opportunities as reporters and as producers. We will remind participants of the things they should have in their virtual and terrestrial tool kits and give them useful tricks of the trade. That’s everything from advice like: always keeping the tape rolling to creating opportunities for surprise and genuine emotion during the interview. The workshop will be valuable to journalists of all media and all skill levels. The workshop will be interactive. Panelists and participants will collaborate on exercises that help identify opportunities for great sound, strong writing, and compelling digital content.
