I’m back with a new article at Writers Helping Writers! This time, I talk about the informational interview, a research method that writers can use in addition to books, articles, and documentaries – or when those resources don’t provide the information you’re seeking. Understandably, pursuing this kind of interview can be intimidating, especially if you’ve never conducted one before. So this post offers tips on all three “phases” of the process – before, during, and after the interview – that I hope will give other writers the confidence and clear vision to go after their own.
Hope you’re doing well! Life offline has started to smooth out (I’ll explain this briefly in next week’s edition of What’s Making Me Happy); and now that this WHW post and my next DIY MFA article are done, I hope to resume posting here on a regular basis soon. So thank you for sticking with me through this recent rough patch and inactive period. I really appreciate it. 🙂
As always, feel free to share your comments on the post directly at WHW or here at the blog!
