NEW YORK, April 6 (UPI) -- Lena Dunham is getting into the book publishing business with her latest imprint deal with Random House.

The Girls creator and Not That Kind of Girl author will begin working under the imprint -- Lenny -- to publish both fiction and nonfiction works selected by both Dunham and Lenny Letter co-creator Jenni Konner.

Buzzfeed broke the story, adding the new imprint is an extension of the duo's popular feminist email newsletter, which goes out to more than 400,000 subscribers on a bi-weekly basis.

"The newsletter was a way to take the temperature of an audience and see if there really was a place for us to step into other media with the Lenny voice," Dunham told The Hollywood Reporter about Lenny Letter.

The newsletter has included op-eds by such celebrities as Michelle Obama and Jennifer Lawrence, and is anticipating more from the likes of actress Julianne Moore and writer Shonda Rhimes.

Now, the imprint, Dunham told Buzzfeed, will produce books that "aspire to push the ball forward on the issues that matter to our audience, with wit and style. We hope to see them sticking out of purses and riding public transportation everywhere."
