Setting up Interviews
Staff Please get in touch if you’d like to interview one of our staff members! We’d love to chat with you! October and November is an especially busy time for us, so we don’t always have time to interview with everyone, but please drop us a line! You can also find official interviews with our staff here. Feel free to quote from and reference these interviews in your articles, and get in touch if you have any further questions.
Participants The best way to get in touch with participants for interviews is through your region’s Municipal Liaison. These goodly folks are the volunteer chapter heads for the area, and they can help put you in touch with participants and let you know when the next writing event in your area will take place. Please check the ML Page to see if your area has a Municipal Liaison you can contact. If you have an account on our site, you can get in touch with them by clicking on their site username and sending them a message via NaNoMail, the site-based messaging system. If your area doesn’t have an ML, you can contact participants directly in several different ways. The first is by going to our Search page and searching under your city. You can then send these participants a NaNoMail directly about your article. We ask that journalists make themselves conspicuous by putting PRESS (in all caps) somewhere in their username. (This helps with our housekeeping, as we can go in and delete these accounts at the end of the event.) You can also simply post a message in your area’s Regional Lounge.
If you have more questions, just drop us a line.
