tenderness, yea was founded after a series of readings in new orleans, when we realized all the best writers we knew didn’t have a place to put their work. it’s a place for them, and a place for you too. 

we understand that the word tenderness means  “kindness and gentleness” as well as “a sensitivity to pain”, we want to know what this word means to you, as well as how the multitudes of its definition intersect. 

tenderness, yea is june gehringer, zoë blair-schlagenhauf, and amelia seidel. please excuse our mess.
