March 2016 | Home

Dear Damsels,

Our theme for March is HOME.

It’s a word that can mean a place. A person. A feeling. Something that you make for yourself or let others make for you. Somewhere you leave behind, and then wish you could return to.

It’s a building that you can’t shake from your memory. A place in your heart that you always find yourself yearning for. It’s a warm smile and a hug. It’s an uncomfortable silence and a stare. It’s the only place you want to go at the end of a long day.

Maybe you haven’t found your definition yet – maybe you’re still searching for spaces that you can fill, somewhere to stamp and claim as yours.

Whatever this word means to you, we want you to tell us. Our deadline for any submissions is 25th February.

Please see our submissions guidelines here. We hope your writing finds a home at Dear Damsels.

Thanks and love,

DD x
