πŸ‘€ Ben Doherty and Sarah Krasnostein with Leo D'Angelo Fisher

When writers choose not to write as though they are both omniscient and objective, all kinds of interesting decisions confront them. How much responsibility do they have towards the subjects of their stories? How accurate does the time and place have to be? Leo D'Angelo Fisher asks Sarah Krasnostein and Ben Doherty about what it feels like to be the "bearer of the tale", and how they negotiated with themselves, their subjects and the reader, to write their books.
