Tender: A quarterly journal made by women


Tender is a  brand new “quarterly journal made by women” edited in the United Kingdom.

The Quietus recently talked to Tender’s two founders, Sophie Collins and Rachael Allen, about the chosen name, the meaning  of “female-identified” definition and which female writers we can expect to find among its pages.

We use this term [female identified] when outlining who is eligible to submit to the journal because it recognises that gender is fluid and self-identified. We want to include trans women and those who have historically been excluded from women’s space and platforms for feminist expression.
