We are conducting interviews and practicing writing quotes!
In every interview:
- Listen more than you speak. Control the interview gently, but don’t interrupt.
- Be polite but persistent.
- Ask open-ended questions; especially avoid questions with “yes/no” answers.
- Visualise the story as it is revealed to you.
- Evaluate the news story as it is revealed to you.
- At the end of the interview, recap what you understand the story to be.
