Attention Tweens Who Want to Work For a Magazine!

Tween fashion blogger Tavi Gevinson is partnering with Jane Pratt (former editor of Sassy - check out our list on the right for books we're reading now) to a launch a new magazine for tween girls! And she needs your help! Tavi writes on her blog, " . . . 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 of Tavi's new 'zine, email her at She asks for samples, specifically: "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."

Work fast: the deadline is this Friday, November 19th!

Very interesting - especially since Jane Pratt usually targets an adult female demographic. They both share a hipness factor
