Post 4: Q&A with a Photo

Blog Post 5: Q & A with Photo due by 10:00 p.m. on Sunday.

  • Find a relevant person with something to say about your topic. Aim high and have a back up.
  • Prepare your questions. I suggest 5 to 10 questions.
  • Do a Q & A by phone, in-person, email or online chat. Transcribe it.
  • Edit Q & A for grammar/spelling. Decide how much of it to run. Short and informative is better than long and rambling.
  • Write up a few sentences of introduction. You must include the person’s first and last name. Who is the person? Why is she/he someone we should hear from? What does she/he have to say?
  • Bold your questions so it is easier to read.
  • Add hyperlinks to background information.
  • Post a photo of your subject, preferably one you take yourself. Add a photo credit that identifies the source of the photo.
  • Write a descriptive, compelling headline with key words.
  • Five keyword tags.

About Nick DiUlio

My name is Nick DiUlio, a freelance writer and editor from New Jersey. I have been passionate about the craft of writing since I was old enough to spell, and this love has led to a successful career in journalism and creative nonfiction. As a freelancer, I have covered a wide range of topics and personalities, as my published work has focused on everything from profiles of artists and important political figures to hard-news stories with both national and local appeal; from restaurant and beverage reviews to tips on fashion and finance; from health and wellness pieces to celebrity Q&A’s. My work has appeared in several local, regional and national publications—both in print and online—including Philadelphia Magazine, Slate.com, Miller-McCune, New Jersey Monthly, Eating Well, and Delaware Today. Additionally, I am the South Jersey Bureau Chief for New Jersey Monthly and an adjunct journalism professor at Rowan University. To be sure, the broadness of my body of work seems only to be matched by my boundless interest in almost every subject imaginable (except Warren Zevon). Check out some of my most recently published work here.
