Rookie was founded in 2011 as an online magazine for and by teenagers. After seven very special years, it has ceased publication. Read a goodbye letter from Rookie’s founder and editor here, and peruse the archives—all 87 glorious issues!—here. The first four years of the site have been immortalized in print, in the Rookie Yearbook series, and nearly 50 pieces of print-only work by the Rookie community were anthologized in the book Rookie on Love. Thank you for reading Rookie and for growing up with us.
