Got a girl crush on: Tavi starting a magazine with former Sassy editor Jane Pratt
From the bottom of my heart, Tavi, I thank you. I thank you for doing something that should’ve been done a LONG time ago:
“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.”
And she wants YOUR help. Yes, YOU! Send samples of your writing, artwork, “whatever you’re good at and think would be at home in a feminist, creative, moody-teenage-girl magazine” to MagazineSubmissionsAreFun@gmail.com. More details here.
