Hello! I’m Rachel B. Levin, a Los Angeles-based freelance writer and editor. I primarily work with content about culture and lifestyle… which pretty much means I get to explore people, places, products, and ideas that I’m passionate about!
For over a decade, I covered (and uncovered) the best of what L.A. has to offer—dance, nightlife, theater, restaurants, hotels, attractions, and neighborhoods—for nationally recognized publications such as the Los Angeles Times, Travel+Leisure, Time Out, and the Travel Channel.
And while I’m still known to hit the town, in recent years I’ve switched my writing focus from these “outer” experiences to stories that illuminate our “inner” world: intimate profiles, deep-dive features, and quirky personal essays for outlets like Narratively and Southwest Airlines’ magazine.
Food and wellness have also been major emphases for me, in part because nutrition and natural medicine have helped improve my own health issues. I’ve covered the intersection of clean eating and culinary craft as an Editor at Clean Plates, profiled innovators in healthy living for Alive magazine, and produced easy-to-understand stories about the latest research in integrative medicine at NewMarket Health.
I’m an honors graduate of Stanford University in Psychology and earned masters’ degrees in both English and Creative Nonfiction Writing at the University of Southern California.
