We're pleased to trial a new concept we're calling "You Interview," with the idea of encouraging greater interaction between our community and the people who make a difference in your community. Please read this query carefully, because it's unlike previous queries we've featured here in the past:
We're asking you to contact -- by phone or email -- a journalist or editor in your area and ask them some questions.
This week's topic: What's an important news story which they feel their audience needs to be more aware of? And why is this story so important?
Here are the rules you must follow. (Note: Council members should mark unacceptable any submission which is in breach of these rules).
1) The journalist or editor you interview can work offline, but must be represented (e.g. a staff page) somewhere on the Internet -- and you must provide the web address which contains his or her contact details, or their company's contact details.
2) You must inform the journalist or editor who you interview that you are a member of the Ammas.com network, and that the interview will be published on Ammas.com and its network of sites.
3) You must include the person's name, title, the name of their organization, and their location.
4) Then make sure you include your exact questions and the person's exact answers. The wording must be accurate.
You should also feel free, if you desire, to ask your interview subject additional questions related to the topic.
That's it! We look forward to some fascinating interviews!
