Ever tune to the radio, a podcast or a TV news show and just get completely captivated by an interview?
How does someone tell stories that way? How do you get people to open up and share their most personal stories? Or, on a completely different level, how do you demand accountability from public office holders without seeming to aggressive or confrontational as a reporter or citizen blogger?
How do you know what questions to ask and what to listen for? These are all questions that form the topic of our next 613u workshop.
CBC journalist and broadcaster Adrian Harewood joins us on July 11 for a free hands-on session on interview skills. Whether you’re interviewing a city councillor about perceived conflicts of interests or just chatting with your neighbour about their prize-winning flowers, Harewood will share his tips for getting the best interview from your subject.
We expect this workshop to fill up fast so please register ASAP. Bring your laptop, tablet, or old fashion pen and paper and join us!
