Interviewing subject matter experts is one of the most important skills needed for success as a technical communicator. Join me to discuss how to prepare for an interview, conduct it, and follow up. We’ll discuss how to cultivate sources, write questions, and keep cool during an interview. You’ll learn what to say and what words to avoid–and how to conduct an interview asynchronously. I have interviewed many SMEs, as well as tech comm luminaries (including David Pogue, Dr. John Carroll, and Kathy Sierra), and I will share my experience with you.
