Responsibilities of the Writer

An article by Phillip Pullman.

"... I've been telling stories for many years now, and in the course of that experience I've come to see a few things more clearly than I used to...I take it that storytellers are inextricably part of the whole world, and that one way of thinking about the relationship between art and society is to approach it by considering the responsibilities that follow from this."
(The Guardian, December 28, 2002)
