May 26 Interviewing Techniques Workshop
We would like to invite you to our second workshop of the month – an interviewing techniques workshop at The Sacramento Press office from 6:30 – 8 p.m. on Wednesday, May 26.
The interview is one of the most important parts of a story. Which questions to ask, how much time you’ll need and whether to take notes or use a tape recorder are all key to conducting a successful interview and writing a compelling story.
We are happy to have Doug Herndon teach the workshop. Herndon is an English and journalism professor at Sacramento City College and adviser to the college’s newspaper, The Express.
He has been a professional writer for more than 15 years and has worked for Sacramento Magazine, The Sacramento News & Review and The Sacramento Bee.
Come learn the skills and preparations necessary for different scenarios – e-mail interviews, phone interviews and face-to-face interviews. Bring any questions you may have about interviewing or journalism.
Our office is located at 431 I St., Suite 107 in the Amtrak station. We are in the same building complex as Starbucks.
If you are facing Starbucks, go around the building to the left, and you’ll see our Sac Press sign out front.
We recommend you find parking on the street, bike or take light rail, as the Amtrak parking lot charges $1.50 per half hour and we cannot cover the cost of parking. If you take light rail, we will give you two passes when you get here – one to cover your trip here and one to cover your trip back.
RSVP by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks, and we hope to see you there!
