How can you write while the earth is burning? Sarah Sentilles on why making art matters

The Writer’s Room with Charlotte Wood

Every artist comes up eventually against some big, scary questions, like: what’s the point? How can I justify making art in the face of the world’s catastrophes – a burning planet, endless cruelty, broken politics? And yet we know other people’s art has saved each of us, again and again. Art clarifies our thinking, challenges our ideas, illuminates our darkest moments. In this episode of The Writer's Room, novelist Charlotte Wood speaks with PEN-award-winning author and theologian Sarah Sentilles, cutting through the despair to talk about why artists should keep showing up to make something meaningful, ethical, and beautiful.
