I teach a course
in the Journalism Certificate Program of the New York University School
of Continuing and Professional Studies. While I am away in Brazil,
however, Playboy associate editor Tim Mohr will be teaching the course.
In case you are wondering, he works on Playboy's political and music
coverage. For more information about registering, click below.

If you can come up with
good questions, you can learn how to write interviews and get published
in newspapers and magazines. Designed for novice journalists and established
writers, this course targets the most basic skill in journalism and
the backbone of all articles: interviewing. Topics include choosing
the right topic; researching an idea and interviewee; dealing with
spokespeople and publicists; preparing for an interview; interviewing
styles and techniques; choosing and attributing quotes; and marketing
your story. Participants base written assignments on actual interviews.
Guest speakers include top New York City journalists and editors.
