Saturday, Dec. 10
2-4 PM ET

online event; open to Publishing 360 mentors and mentees

In this workshop, we’ll learn the art of interviewing writers about their writing.

When we take on the role of interviewers, we are able to direct discourse and create narrative. We can connect with other writers and learn from their experiences, intensions, and stories.

But what kinds of questions make for a great interview? How can writers bring something special to an interview with an author? We’ve got you – join us for all the best tips and tricks!
