Dear Damsels,

This September, be bold. Our theme for the month is COURAGE.

Pulled from within us, from the fire that burns inside, no matter how weak the flame. It echoes in our voice, it determines our choices, our actions.

It’s found in the face of pain, of hardship, of threat. In putting your faith in someone to stand beside you. Holding their hand and saying, me too. It’s showing up, time after time, again and again.

From tough decisions and close calls to the great unknown. It’s the willingness to try, no matter the cost.

So take courage, damsels, and use your voice. Send us your words on this theme by Tuesday 28th August (but make sure you check out our writing guidelines first).
