    Do you pay interviewees? or are they fine to do them unpaid in return for promotion/press?

    Sorry if this is imposing - you did say 'anything' though ;)

      No worries! :)

      I don't pay interviewees. I think that would be weird and AFAIK is not general practice (unless you are retired CEO of a bank).

      Most of the pieces in Offscreen are about people telling their own, very personal story, and so they are to an extent self-promotional. It would be weird to pay people to talk about themselves or their companies.

      Besides, I've never been asked for money to interview someone. Have you?
