How do I cite an interview in MLA?


MLA divides interviews into two broad classifications: 

  • published interviews, such as those in a magazine or newspaper, with and without a known interviewer.
  • personal interviews (interviews or correspondence) conducted by you, the writer, and are not publicly available.
