How can you get good stories from an interview? That’s the topic of a chapter in the new Narrative Arts guide on “Storytelling and Social Change” — available as a downloadable PDF (sign-up required) or in an online magazine format.

The chapter on interviewing covers start-to-finish tips on how to identify the best interview candidates, guide your interviewee, and follow up.

A related chapter, on how to gather stories from your constituents, also has a sidebar on partnering with StoryCorps.
