Based on the book, The Art of the Author Interview, by Sarah Anne Johnson, this workshop teaches participants the critical elements in preparing, conducting and publishing an author interview.
Key topics include the role of the interviewer, to edit or not edit and author’s words, handling the logistics of the interview, and using the resulting interview as a way to connect to and participate in your literary community.
Some of the questions that will be answered:
- Why interview an author?
- Who should I interview?
- How do I contact an author?
- How do I prepare for the interview?
- How do I keep the interview working for me?
