Dear Damsels,

We’re feeling good. The next online theme is PLEASURE.

It’s pure joy. Unbridled happiness. Delirious delight. It rose-tints our lenses, reveals itself to us in unexpected ways, and lingers long after the thrill fizzles out.

It can be overwhelming, too. Dizzying. Pushing us past the point of no return, and leaving us unsure and empty in its wake, as often as we’re left feeling filled up.

Simple or decadent, we want to know: what’s your pleasure, Damsels? Send your words to us by Tuesday 9 May – remembering to read the guidelines first.

And remember, our DD Patreon members get personalised feedback to anything they send through. So get writing!
