- This is a verbatim interview which will appear EXACTLY as you write it. Use the tone you would when talking to a potential ticket buyer, not a potential reviewer!
- Did we mention spelling and grammar yet? Consider checking out Grammarly the free writing assistant.
- Agents! If you are submitting an interview on behalf of a client YOU are responsible for ensuring that it meets these criteria for submission especially in terms of length, what to say, and how to say it.
- To get a sense of what to say and how to say it try reading a couple of past interviews here.
- We’ll include a description of your show (taken from the listing) in the introduction to the piece, so don’t feel the need to repeat what’s in there in your answers.
- This is an unfiltered opportunity for you to talk about your show. Be passionate. Don’t assume readers know what you know.
- As with all reviews & coverage that you receive, don’t forget you can retweet the link to older content at any time.
WHAT WE WILL THEN DO
If you request for your interview to be published on a particular date, then we shall do our best to comply – but we can’t promise to do so. You will know the interview is live when we tweet a link to the interview via our account @EdinFortyNine. Please do follow us and we will follow you back.
WHY IS THIS INTERVIEW CALLED GETTING 49ed?
Edinburgh49 was established to cover the arts scene in Scotland’s capital outside the Fringe. 52 weeks of the year minus 3 weeks of the Fringe = Edinburgh49. In 2015 we expanded our respected coverage to include the best and brightest from the August festivals.
