Dear Damsels,

As one year ends and another begins, what have you learned? Our next theme is WISDOM.

Accumulated day by day, year by year, misstep by misstep. Passed down through generations; shared within communities; learnt the hard way – getting wise to something a little too late.

It’s the place you turn to for knowledge and inspiration – the person wise beyond their years, your own experience guiding you forwards. Dispensing with the conventional and finding the wisdom that work for you.

Whether tuning into your own or seeking it out elsewhere, we want to hear from you on this theme – send your words our way by Monday 23 January – remembering to read the guidelines first.
