After Tavi blogged ad nauseam about her love for the glossy, which was founded in 1988 and shuttered in the mid-nineties, before the young blogger was born, Sassy founding editor Jane Pratt reached out to Tavi to discuss launching a teen magazine together.
According to this blog post on Tavi's site, the two are now going full-steam ahead with their plan for the new magazine, which will "be for an audience of wallflowerly teenage girls."
And although it sounds like it'll simply be the second incarnation of Sassy, Tavi maintains that the new magazine "won't be Sassy (or the rebirth of Sassy, or Sassy 2.0)," but will be more like an updated version that recognizes "that whole Internet thing happened" and will be, overall, a "teen-magazine-that-doesn't-suck."
For those who want to join Tavi and Pratt in their "feminist, creative, moody-teenage-girl magazine" venture, the two are asking the public for suggestions on the magazine's name, as well as writing samples so that they can surround themselves with like-minded contributors.

So yep, we think our teenage self is feeling a tad jealous of Tavi right now. And perhaps listening to Bikini Kill to cope.
