It is natural to be able to write 5W1H. What should be done to go beyond a cursory interview and get words that even the interviewee was unaware of? What is the role of the editor and photographer who accompany the interview? Yasushi Furuta, who knows the writing business inside and out, explains the professional know-how that can be used for both creative writing and nonfiction, including how to use a four-fold memo to organize prior knowledge and an interview notebook. He also explains how to be curious, relax your partner, be aware of your readers, don't be an expert, drink the tea you are offered, take a nodding man with you, and many other examples of successes and failures.
