The Quarantine Tapes 144: Sarah Broom

Wednesday, Dec 23, 2020

“Art is made from life. And, so, how do we encourage a kind of life that has meaning and purpose on a very small level, in our personal worlds and in the worlds of the people we love?”


On episode 144 of The Quarantine Tapes, guest host Eddie Glaude is joined by writer Sarah Broom. Eddie and Sarah’s conversation dives deep into the craft and practice of writing. Sarah reflects on the time she is spending with visual art lately and the influence of painting and color theory on how she thinks about writing.

Eddie and Sarah are both writers from the Gulf Coast. Sarah talks about how her relationship to that place and its history comes out in her writing. Their conversation offers striking meditations on form, dialogue, and how to write as a witness to this moment.
