Asking Questions with Answers You Don’t Want to Hear

August 20, 2020 @ 1:00 pm

Pandemic University logo: a university-style circular emblem with the words "Pandemic University" arched at the top and "Pop-Up School of Writing" at the bottom. In the middle is an illustration of an open book that reads "STAY HOME 2020" and there is an illustration of a N95 face mask over it.

There are no stupid questions, but there are certainly some bad ones. Whether it’s in the course of reporting a story, profiling a subject, negotiating for more money, or organizing your colleagues, what do you do when another question—”Do I really want to know?”—is getting in the way? Join writer, editor, and labour organizer Haley Mlotek for a comprehensive overview of tips, tactics, and techniques for asking hard questions. Her seminar includes guest expert interviewers and organizers, all with their own unique perspectives on how to get the most out of every conversation. You’ll learn how to work with the answers you get and get the answers you need.

On behalf of the author and PanU, a portion of proceeds will be donated to Gays and Lesbians Living In a Transgender Society.
