Dear Damsels,

This month, get weird with us. The theme for October is STRANGE.

Unfamiliar, unusual, untoward – we want you to  step beyond and tell us your stories of the unknown.

It’s in the alien and the uncanny, the weird and wonderful, the unexplored areas of the real and imagined. It pushes boundaries. It’s a new normal. 

You’ll find it in the feeling of being the odd one out. Of being left behind. Of being ahead of the curve.

After all, the truth is stranger than fiction. 

So don’t be a stranger – send us your words. We can’t wait to hear from you.

Submissions close on Wednesday 25th September. Make sure to check the submission guidelines before sending through your work.
