Celebrate the words and stories of women with the Dear Damsels Annual 2020

During this time of social distancing, we’re finding the words of others an ongoing source of comfort and creativity. For that reason, we’ve made two chapters of the DD Annual 2020 free and available to download. Simply click the link below to enjoy some of our very favourite writing by women on the subjects of FEAST and GROWTH.

At the end of each year, we gather up some of our favourite pieces of writing by women, accompanied by beautiful photography and illustration, and put it all together in a new issue of the DD Annual. After four years online, we’re pleased to report that our fourth issue is bigger and better than ever.

Full of joyous, creative writing – including personal essays, short stories, poetry and everything in between – the DD Annual is our way of celebrating the Dear Damsels collective. We hope you love reading it as much as we loved making it.
