Answer

According to MLA style, an interview that you conduct should be included on the Works Cited page.  List the interview by the name of the interviewee. Include the descriptor "Personal interview" and the date of the interview, as in the following example:

Billiken, Billy. Personal interview. 1 Dec. 2014.

In the body of your paper, the interviewee's last name should appear in a parenthetical citation where needed.

If you have any questions, please drop by the iCommons on the 1st floor of Pius Library to consult the MLA Handbook.
