Studies have shown that adults with four to five close friends enjoy the highest levels of overall life satisfaction. Yet in literature, friendship is often marginalised in favour of romantic or familial relationships. Why is that so? In this panel, we gather authors who chose to foreground platonic relationships in their novels. Explore the inspiration behind their characters, the value in maintaining friendships through various life stages, and the importance of highlighting more platonic relationships in our stories.

This programme is co-presented with Sing Lit Station and includes a live Q&A towards the end of the session.
