dc.description.abstract Silence is a ubiquitous by-product of traumatic crime but when the subjects of such crime finally decide to speak, the interview process itself can be a traumatising experience. Furthermore, the handling of information by the journalist, particularly in long form narrative, is integral to that experience. Contextualising these narratives within the genre of literary journalism, this essay is an exploration of professional practice when dealing with traumatic memory in subjects. The essay draws on interviews that form part of a manuscript of creative non-fiction entitled Speaking Secrets. It calls for a greater academic discussion of empathy as a tool of journalism, rather than as a notion often regarded as anathema to the discipline.
