Dear Damsels,

As our first year online draws to a close, we’re in the mood to turn our minds to the ends of things. That’s why our December theme is CLOSING.

From grand finales to bittersweet goodbyes, an ending isn’t always sad. Crossing the finishing line can be a moment to celebrate as much as a chance to stop and breathe.

It’s the feeling of leaving the party. Of going home. Of drawing the curtains at night and feeling bone-tired and completely content. It’s the realisation you know the exact moment something fizzled and died.

And of course – when something ends, it’s only a sign something else is about to begin.

So before we leave this year in the dust, tell us about your endings, Damsels – happy and sad, momentous and inconsequential.
