As garden writers, it’s our job to consistently learn, communicate and dig a little deeper. Author and writing coach Mary-Kate Mackey will discuss the techniques needed to be a compassionate, strategic, and efficient interviewer. She will discuss tips for proper preparation, phone interviews, email responses and attentive listening so you can get the most from each subject, regardless the topic and create engaging content from your efforts.
