The Art of the Interview
Whether you are a journalist, podcaster, creative writer, or blogger, great interviews make great stories. So how do you get the interview? And once you’ve got it, how do you get the most from it? In this master class Denise Ryan will show you how to establish intimacy, overcome hostility or intimidating subjects, work in traumatic and ethically challenging situations, get past scripted answers, build an arsenal of techniques, and craft story-based lines of inquiry. The class will also engage in some dynamic question and answer sessions.
