Dear Damsels,

As the nights draw in, pull us in close. October’s theme is COMFORT.

It’s the warmth of a hug, a soothing voice, an extra layer wrapped tightly around you. It’s all the things that ease your spine at the end of a long day, and make you take a moment – just a moment.

You seek it out in a familiar place, a favourite person, a memory you return to again and again. It’s indulgent, and it should be.

Sometimes, it’s the cotton-wool casing it can be hard to step outside of – and everything that can happen in those moments of discomfort when you do.

Tell us about your moments of comfort, Damsels. Send us your words on this theme to by Sunday 30th September (but make sure you check out our writing guidelines first).
