TueNight is a storytelling community for women 40+, to share where they’ve been and explore what’s next. Why Tuesday? It's an easy night for a drink with a friend. It's a quiet minute at 10pm to steal a moment for yourself. The night you dream about your second act. TueNight is your night.


what we do:

  • Every Tuesday we deliver a small, handcrafted batch of stories around a particular theme. Our contributors are a diverse cast of top-notch writers who’ve written for The New York Times, Atlantic, Ebony, Vibe and many others
  • We publish a newsletter called The TueDo List featuring clever, valuable links, products and profiles of women 40+
  • TueNight Live! Several Tuesdays a year, we host intimate IRL storytelling events around a certain theme (e.g. FAIL) with 50-75 women attendees; think The Moth for Midlife
  • We gather around the fire (er, Facebook) in a robust social media community called The TueNighters

our audience:

Founded in 2013, TueNight is a dynamic community for affluent, influential, busy women.

Our vibrant audience includes women in their prime, 35-55, Gen-Xers in that mid-life pivot and at the top of their game.

Our readers are highly engaged, averaging four pages per visit on the site, and our loyal newsletter subscribers maintain a 30% open rate.

Devoted TueNight readers describe us as “their weekly treat.”


our content:

We select singular themes that resonate with women and provoke a powerful emotional reaction. The stories we feature are evocative, memorable, and highly shareable. Tales from the frontline of dating over 40, health, beauty, love, aging, family and more.

our team:

We are genuine. We are never apologetic and we definitely have a point of view. We are hopeful, hilarious and inspirational. We live life to the hilt. We are the married 45-year-old who just joined a roller derby team; the woman who started a neighborhood community garden; the women that host their "literary smut" book club once a week...
