When the Personal Becomes Political
By Kaylia Metcalfe
I attended a writers’ conference recently where I listened to a panel discussion about the “The Politics of the Writer” that centered on the idea of separating the artist from the art. Should they be separated? Should they be treated differently? Can this affect sales? Do artists (writers) have the right to hide their politics or the responsibility to share them with the world?
Of course, we were talking about this because of the recent news hoopla regarding Orson Scott Card.
