Maggie Levine has always been passionate about using art to inspire people to write. Since she launched ArtWrite in 2020, the newsletter has built an international following of artists, writers, and art lovers.


Born and raised in Brooklyn, Maggie graduated from Barnard College, where she majored in English and minored in Art History. After a stint working in Hollywood, she received her MFA in fiction from the University of Arizona.


Maggie later developed a writing-based curriculum for docents at the Art Institute of Chicago and consulted in Chicagoland public schools before returning to New York City to teach English for more than 25 years at independent schools. Currently living in Los Angeles, Maggie has written one unpublished novel and is working on a second set in the art world. She also manages the estate of the late artist, Thor Rinden.
