Description: Tender Buttons Press is an independent poetry press founded by American poet Lee Ann Brown, which published several leading writers of the American literary avant garde. Works feature experimental and innovative writing by women. Publications include works by Bernadette Mayer, Anne Waldman, Harryette Mullen, Rosmarie Waldrop, Jennifer Moxley, Laynie Browne, Hannah Weiner, Dodie Bellamy, India Radfar, Michelle Rollman and Katy Bohinc. The press' emblem was designed by Joe Brainard and symbolizes the press' and editor Lee Ann Brown's connection to the New York School poets, several of whom were also published by Tender Buttons (Mayer, Waldman, Weiner). Tender Buttons Press is credited with generating non-institutionalized space for experimental writing, serving both the local New York City and national avant garde poetry communities, particularly those of women.
