Dear Damsels,

It’s time to make waves. Our next theme is DISRUPT.

Unexpected, unsettling, long overdue. An interruption of what has come before, a demand for change, voices asking for more – for something different, for something better.

Causing a stir isn’t always easy, and old habits die hard. But whether it’s a roadblock that takes you in a new direction, the start of a new tradition, or just a ripple in a pond, change can be good. It’s the start of every story, after all.

So tell us, damsels, how will you shake things up? Let us know by sending your words and stories to by Sunday 23rd May, but please read our writing guidelines first. We can’t wait to hear from you.
