Dear Damsels,

The theme for November is ALWAYS.

Limitless, stretched out ahead, constant. You can find it in the reassuring habits that tell you you’re home, and the bedsheets that stay the same. In the relationships that you know you can always rely on.

The eternal stuff of love songs and black-and-white romance, it’s scrawled in inky promises and signatures on a dotted line. It is said as fact. As truth.

Or, maybe it’s not. Maybe it’s an empty promise, a whisper you thought you heard, something you convinced yourself of, once upon a time.

Either way, tell us what this word filled with forever means to you, Damsels. We want to hear it. Our guidelines can be found here, and submissions can be sent to by Sunday 29th October.

?Love, always,
DD x
