NCoW Interview Questions

To ensure consistency among all NCoW interviewers, please use the questions below. All interviews should include (and perhaps begin with) question one, "Are you a writer?" Following that question, please choose 3-4 questions. The goal here is to gather a wide range of responses to these questions. Of course, follow up on responses that are particularly compelling, lively, and/or intriguing - use your instincts!

Before interviewing, be sure to read the NCoW technical specs, which include instructions for both conducting and filming interviews.
