Fourteen-year-old style blogger Tavi is teaming up with Jane Pratt, founding editor of Sassy and Jane, to launch a teen magazine. Tavi took to her blog with details:
Of course, it won't be Sassy (or the rebirth of Sassy, or Sassy 2.0) and nor do we want it to be. For one, you can't try to recreate something that good. For another, while I can read old issues of Sassy and relate, the world has changed a bit in the past 15 or so years, and that whole Internet thing happened, and this world calls for something different. Something that will use Sassy as a point of reference for the whole teen-magazine-that-doesn't-suck thing, and something in which Jane Pratt will take part, but something that is not trying to recreate the other something a bunch of us love and don't want to see copied.
The pair will be accepting submissions at MagazineSubmissionsAreFun [at] gmail.com until November 19. We may or may not send a few of our ideas -- hey, there's no age limit!
