Tavi Gevinson is a writer, actress, and editor-in-chief of Rookie (rookiemag.com), a magazine for teenage girls she founded in 2011. A precocious writer, she took the fashion world by storm as a pre-teen with her influential blog Style Rookie before focusing her efforts on Rookie (its third print edition comes out October 2014) and more recently on acting. She has appeared in the Broadway and Steppenwolf Theater productions of This Is Our Youth alongside Michael Cera and the 2013 film Enough Said. She has written for publications including The Believer, ELLE, and the Chicago Tribune, and spoken at TEDxTeen, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Sydney Opera House, the New Yorker Festival, and the Melbourne Writers Festival.
