RWA OWL: The Art of Interviewing



Interviewing someone and turning their words into a fascinating article is easy - if you know how! The Art of Interviewing is full of ideas, tips for success and practical advice on how to facilitate a great interview and turn it into a magazine article. (Or newsletter or blog piece!)

This OWL is a great follow-on from the 800 Words OWL, or it serves as a stand-alone course. However, there is greater emphasis on learning to interview and write a profile feature than on getting it published in a magazine. There will be loads of opportunities for getting feedback-and giving it as well.

Who knows, maybe you'll even win a ROMA?! 

The art of interviewing - it's more than just a chat!

Pre-course preparation

If learners have a particular publication in mind to pitch to, I suggest reading back copies.

Course Type


Hours of Commitment

1.5 - 3 hours/week depending on how much interaction they choose to take part in, how  much research they want to do and how quickly they write.
