Guest curator Ellen van Neerven hosts a panel examining how complex relationships translate to the page. Anuk Arudpragasam (The Story of a Brief Marriage), Rupi Kaur (Milk and Honey), Peter Polites (Down the Hume) and Alison Whittaker (Lemons in the Chicken Wire) have depicted diverse intimacy issues in their writing, from partner violence in queer relationships to misplaced affection and the brutality of love. Together, these writers discuss safety, belonging, violence, sexuality and ethnicity; in love and writing.
