Dear Damsels,

Far off, remote and out of sight – the theme for April is DISTANCE.

It’s between people, between places. Compass points and miles on a meter. An echo in the back of your mind.

You pause, look and say, ‘that was a long time ago’ –  but you can still remember the steps you took. You can still trace the maps in your memories.

How far can you go? How far do you want to? Step into those spaces and tell us your stories.

The deadline for submissions is Friday 23rd March.  Check out our writing guidelines and send your words to

We look forward to hearing your journeys, Damsels!
