Here’s what we’ve got for you this week:
Monday, November 12, 5pm EST: Secrets to Successful Interviews for Your Travel Articles
If you come into travel writing from a non-journalism background, the prospect of conducting official interviews can be daunting.
In this webinar, we cut past the anxiety and unpack exactly what you do and don’t need to know about doing interviews to flesh out your articles–and how learning to rock them can make your writing process much faster and more effective.
Tuesday, November 13, 5pm EST: Securing Interview Sources to Make Your Stories Sing
I’m always shocked when I see people selling lists of contacts at tourism boards. They aren’t hard to find! And, you’d be shocked how many (important!) people are not only available, but very happy to speak with you for your articles. We’ll look at how to find the right people for each piece.
Wednesday, November 14, 5pm EST: Transforming Interviews into an Article (Live Demo!)
By popular request, in this webinar, I walk through the process of organizing notes and quotations from interviews into a full reported feature article from start to finish. The entire webinar will be a live demo using real interviews.
Thursday, November 15, 5pm EST: How to Handle Questions and Responses in Interviews (Live Demo!)
Featuring Visit Lane County and Visit Milwaukee! In this very special webinar, I interview real tourism boards and other representatives to show you exactly what to ask, how to expand, how to move on, and how to make sure you get what you need on the fly in your interviews.
Friday, November 16, 5pm EST: Article Nuts and Bolts: Putting Together a News Brief
We’ll walk through a part of the writing process–structuring your articles–that should come before your fingers hit the keyboard and before you even begin researching your piece to show you how to quit second-guessing yourself and save tremendous time on your articles.
Don’t be late! All the free replays start right on time, and the system isn’t able to accept late attendees.
