Elaine Bennett Interview

Your Best Story: a Virtual Salon

Recently I participated in Elaine Bennett’s “Your Best Story: a Virtual Salon,” which featured interviews with a dozen people from the business and nonprofit worlds, plus a couple of writers, a quilter, and an editor—me. Elaine Bennett is an award-winning speechwriter who’s been praised by Warren Buffett. And she’s a damn good interviewer. We talked about what makes a good story, how to grab the reader or listener, and what your editor is really thinking.

My hope is that this interview will get you thinking about your best story and about ways to invite the reader in.
