Open Questions using the basic 5WH is a well-established interview technique used by the police and many other interview-based roles such as journalism and more. The 5WH is a way of asking open questions, making it impossible for the responding person to answer with a closed answer of ‘yes’ or ‘no’, therefore opening the person up to providing more information so that 5WH technique can be applied again and again.

The 5WH are:

Who

What

When

Why

Where

How

With this in mind, I have decided to use this technique to interview authors, characters and bloggers who may want to sit in the Interview Room with me and answer 6 simple questions.
