My name is Jack and I see you play sometimes at the open mics. I really enjoy your songs and art. For my journalism class, I need to write a feature article on someone and I'm wondering if you would be interested in being interview for my story.
Jack, I need to know more about you. Where do you go to school? What year are you? Are you in college, high school, middle school? Can you provide me with contact information from a third party so that I may check out your story? Will you be willing to just email me a list of questions and I will answer the questions I want in the way I want? regards, Rich (remember, I got your inquiry via THE INTERNET)
