In turbulent times, in a fractured society, fiction can provide comfort and escape. But it can also can also fulfil another role. It can shake us out of our complacency, make us think, push us to question the status quo, and open a window onto people and societies different from our own. Recent Ockham award-winner Pip Adam, and Rajorshi Chakraborti, who both teach creative writing to people living in prisons, join Brannavan Gnanalingam to discuss with Julie Hill the politics of writing fiction, and how it can become a tool to create empathy across divides.
