Anthology had its first, official committee meeting. It was great, we had someone come in from the Charlotte Observer, and she told us about interviewing. She told us things like how we should make sure our interviewees feel comfortable, and to ask follow up questions if we couldn’t cover everything during the initial interview. She gave us this acronym, WHY, which stands for, “Win ’em,” “How did it happen,” and “whY did this happen?” These components showed me what I will be looking for in the stories, as well as what kinds of questions I might ask in interviews. It was really helpful, this sort of Q&A helped me put into perspective what our committee’s goals are, and how we will go about doing that. The more I learn about the process, the more tangible our product is becoming to me.
