Wikinews:Request an interview
This page is for individuals who are not part of Wikinews to request an interview by the Wikinews community. Here, you can make a short preliminary statement about who you are and on what topic you wish to be interviewed. Wikinews contributors will consider your request and contact you should they wish to conduct the interview.
Interview requests that have been published can be found at Published interview requests. Making a request on this page does not guarantee that you will be interviewed or that an article will be written and published.
If Wikinews contributors do not show an interest in following up on a request within a reasonable period of time, the request will be archived. In such cases, you are unlikely to receive a message to that effect.
Make a request
Clicking the link below takes you to a form where you can identify yourself and make a statement about what you wish to be interviewed about.
Your statement should focus on a single current event or phenomenon, and answer these questions: who, what, where, when, why and how about this news event. If you are "notable" in any way, you should explain how. Do put some effort into your statement. It should make clear why our readers should be interested in what you have to say. It should be detailed and specific, including dates, names, and locations.
It is very important that you read our Neutral Point of View (NPOV) policy before making your statement. Your request should not run afoul of our NPOV policy (e.g. shouting, personal attacks, etc).
Note that the request will be saved on this page below, and will be visible to all visitors to the website. Please do not place private or confidential information (your own or that of anyone else) in your request.
