Becky Levine is a freelance writer and editor, as well as a speaker at writing clubs, conferences, and critique groups.
Becky is the author of The Writing & Critique Group Survival Guide: How to Give and Receive Feedback, Self-Edit, and Make Revisions (Writer’s Digest, 2010). She has written articles for Writer’s Digest magazine and book reviews for The Horn Book Guide, Capital City Young Writers’ newsletter, and local periodicals. As a freelance editor, Becky provides critique services to other writers.
Through her ten years as an editor and more than fifteen years participating in critique groups, Becky has learned firsthand the support and motivation that writers can give to each other on their writing paths. She is a passionate advocate of the benefits of critique groups and the value in working to build a strong, productive group.
Becky lives in California’s Santa Cruz mountains with her husband, her son, the cat, and their most recent addition–a cockatiel named Bard. She is working on her own fiction projects–a young-adult historical novel set in 1912 Chicago and a picture book in which the dragon does not behave as expected.
