Summary

This comprehensive book covers everything an aspiring interviewer needs to know from developing listening and observation skills to conducting interviews by electronic mail and surfing the Internet for story ideas. Creative Interviewing teaches students by using examples and anecdotal accounts of actual professional experiences. Students are provided with step-by-step instructions on how to prepare for and conduct a strong interview, how to obtain dramatic anecdotes from sources, how to build conversational rapport, how to conduct interviews for broadcast, and how to cope with the dynamics of a series of interviews on a certain topic.

Features:
-Emphasizes concepts such as pre-interview planning, careful listening, giving positive feedback to answers, and extensive use of probes or follow-up questions.
-Focuses on special problems known to trouble students and beginning journalists, including telephone interviewing, interviewing uncommunicative respondents, using a tape recorder, coping with hostility, stonewalling, and asking sensitive or potentially embarrassing questions.
-Addresses typical insecurities of college journalism students undertaking interviews for the first time (Chapter 1).
-Includes extended case histories, interview transcripts, and demonstrations of interview procedures that have worked.
-Presents students with broader perspectives by covering the needs of magazine writers, nonfiction book writers, and news feature writers.
-Covers news beats and discusses concepts of human communication.
-Contains a broad perspective of interviewing essentials--including e-mail and other electronic methods.
-Discusses systematic observation techniques that can be used in journalistic information gathering (Chapter 11).
-Provides a whole chapter (19) on the ''personality interview.''
-A new Chapter 20 looks at the ethics of the journalistic interview and the concern fueled by increasingly prevalent examples.
-Discusses electronic methods and considers both their challenge and effectiveness (Chapter 15).
-Considers interviews from the source's side by including several case studies.
