Lunchtime Lit: What Right Do I Have
Our experiences shape and mould us, yet being a writer involves leaving the fields we know, and transcending direct personal experience to tell a story. But what if the realms beyond these fields are already populated? What are the boundaries when writing about experiences that are not your own? These three writers discuss opportunities and tactics for leaving individual preconceptions at the door, scrutinise the responsibilities of writers who represent others, and consider ways to do so more mindfully.
