Lena Dunham Announces 'Lenny Letter' Newsletter Is Shutting Down

Lena Dunham‘s Lenny Letter newsletter is coming to an end after three years.

The 32-year-old Girls actress revealed the news on Friday (October 19).

“When we began plotting Lenny almost four years ago, we were casually referring to this venture as our cool older sister — someone who’s been there, done that, someone who’s learned from her successes and her failures. But this newsletter has grown way beyond that dream. It was our dearest hope that we could create a space where new voices were safe to speak, and speak loudly. But we didn’t create that. You did,” she wrote in her last letter, along with co-founder Jenni Konner and editorial and creative director Molly Elizalde.

“In the three years since we began, the Internet has opened up for underrepresented writers in ways we wouldn’t have predicted or believed from our 2015 bunker. It was an honor to be part of that brigade, and we can’t wait to see how those who forged that path keep holding space after Lenny is gone.”

They also revealed that “there’s no one reason for our closure…this change allows for growth and a shift in perspectives — ours and yours.”

    If it was still doing well, there is no way she would be shutting it down.
