Dear Damsels,

Innocence, inexperience or ignorance? The theme for August is YOUTH.

Fleeting yet formative, inextricably bound up with a place, a person, a season. It’s relived and recreated through the stories we share, the moments that made us.

It’s in the thrill of new experiences. Of a budding feeling. Of potential. It’s learning, always, seeking the next thing to know, to find and to become.

It’s reckless. It’s vulnerable. It’s all that went untold.

Send us your words on the idea of youth to by Sunday 29th July – but make sure you check out our writing guidelines first.
