Dear Damsels,

A tingle. A flash. A wave, crashing against you and pulling you forward. Our theme for May is THRILLS.

From those bright sparks of excitement that jump-start a decision, to the rush that you feel from your head to your toes as you step into the unknown – it’s feeling the fear and doing it anyway.

It’s the next challenge. It’s getting carried away. It’s the breathless frisson between two people as they stand on the edge of ‘what-if?’.

What thrills you, Damsels? Tell us.

The deadline for submissions is Tuesday 24th April. Check out our writing guidelines and send your words to
