Paid by the Word: Conversations with Writers and Editors

Mike Barlow

Award-winning journalist and prolific author Mike Barlow interviews writers and editors. "Our conversations focus mostly on work habits and career advice. The interviews typically run 25-30 minutes. I try to keep them light and breezy, but when the topic veers into deeper waters, I'm not afraid to go there with the guest,” says Mike.
