So Much for the Journalism Career Ladder

Fourteen-year-old style blogger and Oak Park native Tavi Gevinson is teaming up with Jane Pratt, the founding editor of the much-missed Sassy magazine, to start a new publication. Exactly how it will look is vague at this point, although Gevinson writes that it will have a "'for the people, by the people' kinda vibe."

Right now, writers and editors everywhere who have put in years of servitude at magazines and newspapers are surely slamming the lids of their laptops in frustration. What were you doing when you were 14? I was gluing pictures of Duran Duran in my assignment book and trying hard to avoid being noticed by the mean girls.

Still, it's nice to hear of a new magazine being founded for a change, and it'll be interesting to see if Pratt can work her magic again.
