November 12, 2010

it's happening.

You guys may know how I feel about Sassy. You also may know that I've been babbling about how I think our generation should get one, too. Jane Pratt, founding editor and then EIC of Sassy, also became aware, and emailed me, and we've met a couple times, and it looks like we're going to start a magazine for an audience of teenage girls.

(I am trying so hard to be cool and professional right now.)
(Trying. so. hard.)

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, because I didn't use the word "something" enough in this paragraph, let's all enjoy this Beatles Something video in which John and Yoko walk around in a field dressed like Larry David in a cape:


On the note of that whole Internet thing, a great advantage to creating a magazine today is the access to talent and voice. This is supposed to have a "for the people, by the people" kinda vibe. We want to find the best possible group of people for this project, and a wide range of ages, styles, etc.

If you want to be a part, email us. MagazineSubmissionsAreFun@gmail.com, because we haven't decided on a title yet. (Hey, if you have an idea for a title, that would be great, too!) (PS, any submissions sent to my blog email will be deleted.)

Something that would also be great: A sample -- whether you would put the specific sample in the magazine or not -- of your writing of all and any kinds, photos, artwork, whatever you're good at and think would be at home in a feminist, creative, moody-teenage-girl magazine. Be sure to include the sample of your work, your age and location, and some kind of something about yourself. Talk a lot about yourself, please. I can promise no questions about being a team player and why you got fired from your office job. The deadline is Friday, November 19th -- we wanna get moving!

I know these are vague details, and I'm sorry I can't offer up a better picture of what we're aiming for as a final product, but we want to have all the contributors on board from the beginning so the yet-to-be-made decisions are group-made. A few things people have been asking about, though: It is not a full-time job, you can be a guy, you can be any age, and you don't have to live in the U.S. I'm also sorry I can't say as of now when you'll hear back but it all depends on the number of submissions. I have a really good feeling about this.

Exciting, right?

omigod. where do i get a subscription.

Christina said...

I am so excited for this! I wish you the best of luck because this will be so very amazing!!

eat me said...

Hurp-ah-durp Seeing as though I am not a barer of the lady parts, is it still possible to contribute?
And I think having a magazine that would hold such great power would do wonders for this generation of ours.

Jenna said...

So, in the email, would you like us to include a sample of writing that could possibly be put in the magazine? Or just our information and area of expertise?

Jane said...

This is so exciting! :D I'd really like to be a part of this but I'm not exactly sure what to do. I'll think of something. If I don't get to be in it I will at least get a subscription. :)
Seriously, this is amazing! :D

Sarah Dee said...

Im willing to contribute, depending on what sort of contributions you are looking for! Cannot wait to see the finished project

oh and this song rocks!

i smell Heathers references galore
congrats on this!

Tavi said...

eat me: Certainly! Submit submit submit.

Jenna: There has to be a sample, but it doesn't necessarily have to be what you would put in the magazine.

Zsa said...

YES, THIS IS SOOOO GOOD! MAMA WANTS HIS ISSUE. Tavi, please don't let this fall through the cracks. We need this.

paperwhales said...

Wow this is amazing news. Can't wait to see what the first issue is like!

Hayley said...

How exciting! Although I am past my teenage prime, I am really thinking about submitting an e-mail. This is the kind of publication I wish I had growing up. It is going to be amazing!

Fluorescent Adolescent said...

Wow, that's incredible you come up with this because I was thinking of what my dream magazine would be like just today and how I would create it. You will definitely be hearing from me. :) xx

SOFIA said...

firefly said...

Have a sample of writing, while studying for four tests, a video project, finals, and NaNoWritMo? Sure, why not?

:)

Do I email directly to you, Tavi?

Mika said...

this is going to be something awesome! i'm not exactly a teenager anymore, as i'll be turning 20 in few months, but i'd like to be part of this. i'll send an email with all relevant things as soon as i can cobble them all together.

Camilla said...

OMG!! I sooo want to be a part...But I live in Norway. Guess I can't then?

But will there be possible to subscribe? If so I think you should send it overseas and publish to your blog how to subscribe! ;D

Good luck! :D

Camilla said...

Are there possible to enter even though I live in Norway? I would love to try to enter but if I can't enter I'll subscribe :P Soo, can I enter even though I live in Norway? ;D

SheikChan said...

If I wasn't so lazy and dead tired I'd probably submit some funky ideas followed by weird art that would most likely not be in an average teen girls room...maybe a moody Japanese girl's room... but not American. -sigh-

I'm very happy for you Tavi-kinz. ;3 You're definitely a very successful young girl and I'm sure you will continue to be successful. You have such a way with finding the right people...let me know when you have connections with costumers. That's what I'm all about..costumes *~* and bazaar things.

Well doesn't this sound like a breath of fresh air. Well if you could hear a breath of fresh air that is. But hopefully i can contribute as i'm kind of on the otherside of the world. Still. Sounds just great.

Jennifer Thompson-White said...

sounds awesome

Miu said...

wonderful!
i'm keen on it. hope my american friends can send me one or two issues , because i live in germany and we really heven't got good fashion magazines like sossy, expect vogue and elle and they're so expensive in here. </3

jus wanted to say its awesome!!!!
its good things are rolling.
really looking forward to it

Mina Jade said...

How could one refuse such an offer?!

Amber said...

Wow. I'm excited. I was the Sassy generation and as a high school librarian, I can assure you that this is what the magazine market is missing. While I see myself as more of a reader than a writer, I just might try to submit something.

fifi said...

Oh god, that sounds amaaaazing. Considering there aren't that many great teen mag's out there!
I'd send my fashion drawings buuuuuut that doesn't sound too interesting for a mag that sounds interesting... If. that. makes. any. sense.

marissa (stylebook) said...

THANK.
GOD.

Clarice said...

OMG, does that mean you'll stop blogging?

Ms.Fashionista said...

I love your blog so much. Personally, I adore style and I see you do too. I got inspired to start blogging about my fashion when I heard about your blog from my sister. So one night, at 11 PM, I sat on the couch and blogged for the whole night. I really love what you're doing and its such an inspiration to me personally to see that there is someone else out there that loves fashion and doesn't care what anybody else thinks as much as I do. I would love if you checked out my blog and maybe gave me some feedback?
Its- www.alifeinthefashionlane.blogspot.com

Keep blogging Tavi, because you're pretty much a genius.

spittingpretty said...

I'd also like to know whether being on the other side of the world counts me out? so excited about this.

OscillatingWildly said...

Tavi, this is truly incredible! I'm in the process of starting up a 'zine for my campus about female sexuality & feminism, so I love hearing about these kinds of things! Best of luck to you, and I can't wait to be a regular subscriber!! :D

Carnivorous Seaweed said...

is this even a question? of course we all want to join!

i'm really excited and hope that the magazine will turn out good. is early subscription available. WANT TAVI/MAKER OF SASSY'S MAGAZINE SO BAD. yearning for it.

Jennifer said...

It'd be great if it was available to the UK too, I'm already too old to read teen magazines but Cosmopolitan just doesn't do it for me.

Ross said...

so....it'll be like a second coming of Sassy and Jane? (jane magazine was probably the best fem. magazine of the late nineties early 00's)

Mich said...

Yes! Please make sure us brits can have a part in this tOo! I know there would be a lot of us willing to take part on this one.

Mary Dawn said...

i was a Sassy reader as a teen, so i give this a huge thumbs up--you're such a cool kid, couldn't think of anyone better for a project like this

The Visual Jerbil said...

i can't believe i survived my teen years without such a thing. All you lucky girls coming up in the '10s! I, of course, will be the too-old-for-teen-mags lady subcribing and devouring your magazine. but then again, i still play with colouring books...

AFitz said...

TOO MANY IDEAS I CANNOT HANDLE THIS RIGHT NOW

kasmslo said...

Well, this is eerily coincidental. I was hoping to keep it on the down-lo, but I've been working on probably my most "feminist" blog entry for almost a month now. A month sounds insane, but... well, it's going to be published hopefully on the 30th. There's no way I can make the deadline of the 19th (perfectionist, compulsive tendencies), but maybe when the time comes you'd appreciate seeing it anyways.

Schmutzie said...

That is perfectly and ridiculously GOOD.

Shawna Elizabeth said...

So exiting! I knew this was going to happen when I saw the video of your speech on this topic- you were so articulate and inspiring. I believe that the timing is right. The cultural black hole that has subsumed the past 15 or so years of mass media has to come to an end. I just fired off a submission so I hope it isn't too hasty. I forgot to include my age and location in the e-mail, which are 27 and Milwaukee, Wisconsin respectively. Thank you for bringing this idea to fruition and good luck xo

Helena said...

Wow! I can't believe it! I am so excited about this, and really like Zsa said, "Tavi, please don't let this fall through the cracks. We need this."

Tara Violet said...

I'd be overjoyed if I was picked to help out with this magazine! It sounds like magic.

I just shot you a rather in-depth e-mail in a hope that I've captured what I'm all about, what my aspirations for participation would be, etc. Hope it's not overwhelming in its length, and feel free to ask me more questions if I haven't touched on something you'd like to hear more about.

Good luck with the magazine! It'll be a hit, I'm sure.
-Tara

Toxic Sandwich said...

I will deff. try to help, I can do some photo-editing, web development, audio production or even just come up with a few ideas, keep me updated on how it all is going. Good Luck.

Ben said...

I'd love to contribute! I'll start working on ideas right away!

fashionslap.net said...

A little jealous, but congrats. That's awesome and we could use another fashion website out there.

Just Another Londoner said...

I actually clapped my hands with glee and let out a repressed squeal when I read this. (NOTHING to do with the tv show people!). Submitting something in 6 days will require a level of organisation to which I am not usually accustomed but heigh ho let's give it a go. (Wow, that's gonna be my new catchphrase. What a creative evening!).
Also, as I'm sure you know-or maybe not?-there was an article about you in the Daily Telegraph Saturday magazine today. It felt kind of weird...like, your blog is for fashion-y people and there it was being held up for comment to most of middle-class England! Strrange.

Bella said...

Ohmygod. Wow. I'm submitting.

Chelsea Lane said...

Really exciting. reading this post kind of gave me chills, this will be awesome!

Heather said...

This is really, really amazing. Sassy quite literally changed my life (contrary to popular beliefs, rural southwestern Pennsylvania wasn't awesome in 1990) and let me know there were loads of other things going on outside of my teenage bubble. I'm super excited to see what you guys make happen. Congrats!

sarah said...

HOLYSHIT////
this is possibly the most fantastic thing ever. so much so that i have used slashes instead of exclamation marks, because that is how much joy there is in the world right now.

barefoot_and_frolicking said...

Tavi, this is fantastic news! I 'came of age' with Sassy magazine attached at my hip. I admire your approach to 'girldom' and revival of the riot grrrl aesthetic in various facets of the arts.

Also, I recently spoke about you in a university course I teach on writing in the arts. We took a look at your writing style, blog, and position in popular culture. It was a fantastic class!

Is there an age limit for contributing?

Best wishes,
Marlie

Tammy said...

Tavi, this rocks! I never read Sassy, was too young, but I interned at JANE in college so you've got my full intrigue and support in this endeavor -- creative collaborations like this are rare...embrace every moment!

AFitz said...

I CAME BACK BECAUSE I THOUGHT I'D BE ABLE TO HANDLE IT NOW BUT NOPE, STILL OVERWHELMED

I LOVE THE 90's!!! they were the best decade...sooo cool...i'm glad i was born in them...
you will definitely be receiving something in the e-mail....

Oh Tavi, that's so exciting!! As an original loyal reader of Sassy, I'm absolutely thrilled to hear that there may be a "Sassy 2.0" for my daughters to read someday! Of course, they're only 2 and 4 years old, so I'm expecting wild success from you, girl! Best of luck!

yeah, I'll be subscribing. Or at least buying an issue here and there.
I'm excited that you're one of the key players, and I know you'll do great.

Shelley Noble said...

Totally.

Saw this coming though. If Jane didn't jump on it, someone else nearly as smart would.

Great luck!

Natassia Lea said...

that is so great, I may send my resume! and artwork

WendyB said...

Ask Jane if she remembers how Teenage Magazine went out of biz and guys came to repossess the typewriters! Ha! One of my favorite "crazy job" memories.

Pashupati said...

Who can wait to read that?
I can't but I'll do.

B said...

So.freaking.pumped! This needs to happen like yesterday. You should do a travel/fashion from around the word/cultural awareness section, please-and-thank-you.

eviatkin said...

This sounds really awsome, i'm a teenager (16) and those justin beiber magazines really don't talk to me at all. A magazine like that would be great (espetially if it has a really artistic approach since i love art :) )

It would have a great reader base in Montreal because it really is Hipster-town here :) i lovee my city

If i could do ANYTHING to help out, i would really love to.

I THINK YOU SOULD CREATE A GROUP OF TARGET POPULATION TO CONSULT ABOUT IDEAS

(i put it in bold because if you don't bother reading through my text, it's the main idea i would like you to get )

anyways good luck on the project it would be awsome

LRB said...

Can't wait for the launch!

Rachel said...

Girl, this made my already awesome evening. I will DEFINITELY be reading every issue. I wish I had the talent to be involved but I will probably just be a reader instead. You're inspirational.

flora said...

OMG can u make it available in th uk or at least suscribeable in the uk???

Leah said...

Wow now... stop the bus! This has got to be some of the most exciting news I've read in a while. A really good magazine is definitely what my 15-year-old self was lacking (heck, even my 19-year-old self struggles)

Anyway, I would totally contribute, except I'd have no idea where to even begin... so, best of luck! x

YOU. ARE. AMAZING.

Marissa June said...

You are living my teenage dreams, Tavi. When I was in high school, I was a religious reader of JANE (which eventually had me hunting Sassy down) and Jane Pratt was my hero.

Congratulations!

alteredbeta said...

Excellent work. Great pic choices. Great writing.

I just have to wonder what you'll do when everyone's dressing like you.

PS - why can't i have my own identity in the comments? why does it have to be through a mega-service? you don't seem like the kind of person that would force fans into a digital id grid. maybe it reduces comments you don't want if you remove folks ability to choose their own identities? that's why they call it a slippery slope.

Still, I'll enjoy seeing where this goes. And watching your inner Courtney Love emerge! Best of luck.

Mariana said...

This blog post is so full of YES.

Catherine said...

Congratulations Tavi!

I hope your magazine will be online too, 'cos you could add animation/videos and music and reach an international audience which would be cool.

Ohohoh you should totally approach Sara Ziff and see if she'll write a long article for you. And it'd be funny to do a "spot the bad photoshop" series, puncture the whole barbie aesthetic a little.

Also a really really cool thing to do would be an "how I got here" interview series inspirational women. Not neccessarily women who are in the mainstream public eye. Like Garance Dore is doing a 5-parter atm, Zaha Hadid would be amazeballs, Annie Leibovitz, writers, company directors, judges.... anyone who has been successful, talking about the bad and the good and what they did to get there.

Best of luck whatever you publish :D

And I sure hope I'll be able to contribute to this too. x3

This looks very promising! Best of luck. :)

madamvonsassypants said...

This is incredible and something the world and teenage girls everywhere sorely need. I love Jane Pratt, and the power of you two combined is going to be a reckoning.

Roma said...

Tavi! I sent an article i wrote, it was super impulsive but i was on this i just drank three cans of red bull vibe! I super excited!!! ogod i hope that this magazine is created. I'm 14 but i think that our generation is lacking something like this.

(here from the article on Jezebel)

Congratulations! It's always wonderful to hear of a new teen magazine, particularly one in which actual teens will have serious input! I'm always recommending new markets to the teen writers I know, so I'll tell them about this new venture and, once it's up, I'll be sure to put it on my webpage.

In the meantime, good luck, and have fun!

This is such a great idea. I love that you're looking to your reader community for submissions and ideas. I wish I had some kind of talent to offer but I'll be happy to be one of your readers when the magazine comes out. I don't know what the kids are into half the time but I get the feeling that a magazine project between you and Jane is going to speak to this almost 30 something.

I'm form Portugal, my name's Ruben. I just wanna suport your ideia and job, and please try that "your" magazine arrives to Portugal. I'm a guy and i love fashion, and a small contry like this is kind of hard to be a guy who loves fashion, and dresses differently. So we need more fashion from the outside.
Once again, congratulations, and keep your amazing good taste.

Hi Tavi!

I'm a big fan, as you're so unabashedly fashion friendly -in it's most unbiased form.
I LOVE Sassy! I would gobble of any copy of the magazine that I could find back in Manila years ago.
I love the ideals it promotes, the humour and the non-formulaic photography -which back then the masses couldn't understand and now is all over the place. For me it was the most real form of print media and I could very well relate.

In California and now and was just as sad as I was then when Sassy disappeared. Though I did love Jane too...but that's been long gone so this great news is something I looking forward to.

I would love to say I'd help with photographs but I don't get a camera till Christmas.
Nevertheless, thank you Tavi and Jane! I'm excited!

I grew up reading Sassy, and I'm ecstatic to hear that the essence of the mag shall be resurrected!
And dude, my biggest 14-year-old accomplishment was getting the cute boy in my English class to notice me (if you count a pencil pass as noticing). So go you.

Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and appearance. I must say that you’ve done a excellent job with this. In addition, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Chrome. Outstanding Blog!
