Event description

Description

Dublin One City One Book - The Country Girls - Workshops

Based on her experiences of researching and writing An Unconsidered People, Catherine Dunne’s workshop will focus on some of the key issues that arise when preparing an interview. Background research is essential: it gives direction to the interview and highlights the issues for discussion. Listening is as important as the questions we ask. ‘Open questions’ help as does a willingness to ‘follow the story’ – going where the interviewee leads. It’s essential to be ethical. Sometimes, people reveal more than they intend. Their interests must be protected. Finally, the mechanics of transcribing will be explored as will editing the interview. What do we include? What do we leave out? How do we decide?

This event is open to the public.
