Dear Damsels,

A new perspective. A change of heart. A fresh take. Our next theme will be SHIFT.

It can be a long time coming, a building realisation that makes you look again at what you thought you knew. Sometimes it happens all of a sudden, a sharp intake of breath as you grasp something you should have understood a long time ago.

It’s repositioning, new roots on old ground. It’s learning, accepting there is always more to know, moving with the tide instead of pushing against it. Then raising your voice, ready to be heard, knowing that with just a bit of effort things might never be the same.

This has been a year that may have altered you in a way you could never have imagined. We want to hear about it; who you were then, who you are now.

Get your words to us by Sunday 20th September to be part of our last theme of 2020 (remember to check our writing guidelines first). We can’t wait to hear from you.
