Launching in September, Lenny will be a weekly newsletter by Dunham and Konner, Dunham’s production partner and showrunner of her HBO series “Girls.” According to its website, the newsletter will cover “feminism, style, health, politics, friendship and everything else.”
Dunham recently told Buzzfeed that Lenny will draw from her vast pool of celebrity friends for writings in the newsletter. but will also have pieces from its own staff members. Those include Jessica Grose, a former Jezebel writer and editor at Slate; Laia Garcia, associate editor and writer for Rookie; and Doreen St. Felix, who has contributed to Pitchfork, the Hairpin and Buzzfeed.
“With Lenny, there’s no such thing as TMI, there’s no such thing as self-involved,” Dunham said in that article. “We’ll be allowed to show the ugly and complicated thought processes that go into forming your own brand of feminism, and your own identity, because it’s not all clean back here.”
