Arcadia University assistant professor Tracey Levine

Tracey Levine, assistant professor of English, was featured in a Sept. 29 The Kensington Voice article for her work with nonprofit bookstore The Head and the Hand, located in the Fishtown section of Philadelphia. While in quarantine, Levine taught a virtual memoir writing workshop for the bookstore.

While Covid-19 forced businesses to shutter brick-and-mortar stores, The Head and the Hand hosted online workshops to maintain a sense of community and belonging. The Kensington Voice reported that “the virtual workshops fostered a safe place for participants to talk about their emotions during the pandemic.”

Levine has published her creative writing with Verbal Seduction, Metropolis VoxPop, Literary Mothers, The Literary Yard, The Halcyon Review,  and The Philadelphia City Paper, and has forthcoming work in Streetlight Magazine and The Corner Club Press. Additionally, she’s worked with WHYY on a variety of documentary projects.

Levine will next host An Evening with Emma Copley Eisenberg, a visiting author workshop through Arcadia, on Oct. 28. The event will consist of a lecture, a Q&A, and a reading from Eisenberg’s new book, The Third Rainbow Girl.
