As an artist, do you have a right to talk about somebody else’s truth?

As a writer, I think honesty and truth are central to any piece of work I create, but if this truth intrudes upon someone else’s experience – is it your right to discuss it, no matter how much of an effect it had upon you? 

Maybe it’s a matter of time, space and distance – if enough time has elapsed since the event, maybe it won’t cause as much pain or animosity if you choose to write about it. If a resolution has been made, or if unfortunately the person you are writing about is no longer around, maybe it becomes easier to write about that experience.
