Update: Due to unforeseen circumstances, we’re sorry to say that the DD Get Together with Pots & Pals brunch event is to be postponed. We’ll be confirming the new date soon, and if you’d like receive updates about this, sign up to our mailing list. Alternatively you can reserve your place at the rearranged workshop – simply drop us an email. Thank you to all the female writers and brunch-lovers who bought a ticket and for everyone’s support and excitement for the event! And if you were sad you couldn’t make the original date – we can’t wait to see you at the workshop later this year!


If you know Team DD, you’ll know we love a good old get together. That’s why we’re so excited to be getting together with Time Out-featured supper club Pots & Pals to host our first creative writing workshop and brunch.

The relaxed and welcoming workshop is suitable for all women who love to write, and is the perfect space to practice your fiction writing alongside a group of supportive women. While you’re honing your craft, a Middle Eastern-style vegetarian brunch will be served up by Pots & Pals, with all dishes served on handmade ceramics that will also be available to buy on the day. The workshop will be led by writer, editor and poet Francine Toon (@FrancineElena).

Basically: creative writing + brunch + ceramics

What more could you ask for?
Tickets for this event will be released soon – to include a two-hour creative writing workshop, a two-course brunch plus cocktail

To celebrate publication of the DD Annual (2017/18) and DD’s second birthday, we held our second DD Get Together in January 2018.

It was an evening of poetry, spoken-word performances and discussion from our very own writers, as well as general DD merriment.

Speakers included Dear Damsels contributors Anna Myers, Sara Sherwood and Anna Kahn, as well as Body Confidence Revolution ambassador, presenter and model Kitty Underhill, writer, editor and careers blogger Bianca Bass, and founder of YOUNG GOLD TEETH, the creative lifestyle blog, community and platform, Emily Beeson. We also had music on the night from space pop, folk rock artist Luna Neptune.
