Rookie Day #MWF13

The 17-year-old Rookie Magazine founder presents Rookie Day

This event has finished

That’s right, Tavi Gevinson (pictured) – the BFF of cool, articulate young women everywhere – is coming to Melbourne. If it wasn’t demoralising enough for us struggling creatives that the Illinois-based 17-year-old became an international fashion icon at the age of 11 with her blog The Style Rookie, she’s also the founder of Rookie Magazine, an indispensible website for teenage girls (and anyone who appreciates thoughtful and fun writing on growing up, popular culture and make-up application). We can’t be jealous, because we love her so much.

On Rookie Day, she's joined by fellow Rookie Magazine staffer Minna Gilligan, gamer and Katie Williams, writer and broadcaster Jessica Alice, activist Linh Do and dance advocates No Lights No Lycra. This day aims to help you get your dreams in order and down on paper (or iPad or laptop, evs). Hosted by Anna Barnes.

For under 20s only!
