Dear Damsels,

This February, take a look back at where you’ve come from. Our next theme is ORIGINS.

Whether it’s the start of a journey, the first word of a sentence, an introduction into a conversation or the first step towards a decision – we’re  going back to the beginning. 

It’s where it all started, it’s everything you’ve inherited, it’s the roots beneath your feet that have been there all along – the ones binding you to the people, places and memories that have made you who you are today. 

It’s an anchor. It’s a line to trace back and back. It’s just a starting point.

Press rewind with us, Damsels – we want your origin story. Please send all submissions to by Wednesday 23rd January but make sure to check our writing guidelines first.
