Dear Damsels,

What are the things that have been given to you? What have you given to others? Our first theme of 2022 will be INHERITANCE.

It’s what we leave behind, proof that we were here. An old refrain, a trinket passed to another, a promise, a habit that dies hard.

From our nearest and dearest to passing strangers – from the lasting impact of a connection, to a fleeting moment that lingers long after the spark is gone.

Legacy, ancestry or just a tradition – it’s the things we can’t shake, no matter how hard we might try.

Tell us, Damsels, what have you received? Get your words to us by Friday 21st January using the form below (though make sure to check our submissions guidelines first!).

We can’t wait to hear from you.
