Some authors let the interviewee read the transcript and make revisions prior to submitting it. Transcripts should be at least three thousand words and can be as much as five thousand. If we publish the interview, we will edit it to the length we need and send you and the edited galleys for your approval prior to publication. It will be your responsibility to seek approval from the interviewee. We will also need a photograph of the interviewee — in digital format and with complete contact information, including an e-mail address.
