“While there’s no one reason for our closure,” they write, “this change allows for growth and a shift in perspectives — ours and yours.”

Since Dunham debuted the newsletter in 2015, it reportedly peaked to about 500,000 subscribers, but numbers have dwindled.

“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,” the open letter continued. “It was an honour 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.”
