You’ve finally settled on a fascinating topic for an article or book–now what do you do? How do you find interview subjects and reach out to them? How do you take notes that you can actually use, and how do you organize all the other material (photos, audio clips, news articles) that you collect along the way?
This seminar will explore the (literal) nuts-and-bolts of research and reporting, from pre-interview jitters to assembling your final endnotes and citations. Think of it as “all the tips and tricks this journalist wishes someone had shared with her when she started out.” Now she is sharing them with you.
