It is said that love conquers all, but the all-consuming emotional state we call ‘love’ is capable of so much more than that. It stirs our creative spirits, brings us to our knees, inspires songs and sonnets and paintings and volumes, breaks us into tiny pieces and glues us back together again with gold adhesive.

With this year's theme, When We Talk About Love, authors, journalists, playwrights, poets, songwriters and artists will tell stories of resilience, of heartbreak and letting go, of family and bodies and home.
